Welcome to Women Leading the Way
Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to join us on this web site. This is a place where we celebrate the many ways that women lead. Each month we feature a story of a woman stepping up to lead the way - in her community, workplace, country, or tribe. We also offer capacity building activities and resources for nurturing all women in continuing to enhance our leadership skills and extend our influence. Knowing that we amplify our power when we connect with others, this site provides ways for women to learn with and from one another across cultures. We invite you to send stories of women you know who are making a difference in the world, and to submit methods and strategies you find effective in your own work as a leader.

Articles and News
Whatever other leadership we may provide in our communities, parenting or leading children is probably the most important impact we have. Betty Kagoro’s article in our site's Articles & Essays section provides insight and practical strategies for helping the children in our lives develop healthy self-esteem. High self-esteem means we trust ourselves to be able to influence our future, that we “bounce back” from disappointments, and that we appreciate diverse perspectives.
