That is the reach HERlead Grantees have had — so far. Each of these young women knows that leadership is about collaboration and paying it forward, and is using these lessons to create real change across the globe.
Training and Empowering the Next Generation of Female Leaders
Since 2011, the HERlead Fellowship has trained, mentored and inspired over 310 high school girls from across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to become the next generation of female leaders. Young women are empowered and equipped with the leadership skills they need to effect global progress, invest in their communities and begin their individual leadership journeys. HERlead has also provided grant funding for more than 246 social impact projects to date.
This groundbreaking initiative is a collaboration between Vital Voices Global Partnership and ascena retail group inc. Vital Voices is the preeminent non-governmental organization whose mission is to invest in women leaders who improve the world. ascena retail group inc. — parent company of the ANN Brands: Ann Taylor, LOFT and Lou & Grey — inspires and connects with women to put their best selves forward every day. Together, these organizations provide HERlead Fellows with mentorship, grants and other resources so they can learn through action and each realize their distinct visions for making a positive difference in the world.
What the Fellowship is all about:
Training forums, grant access and relationship-building opportunities with both peers and influential leaders from across industries and around the world are all part of the HERlead Fellowship experience. HERlead provides intimate mentorship moments, customized leadership training and invaluable skills in order to inspire young women to achieve their leadership potential and change the world.
