March 2021 – The VVEngage Fellowship is announcing its 2020-2021 Fellows, who will participate in the program supporting outstanding women political leaders making and influencing policy across the globe.
Through this fellowship we aim to increase the capacity, decision-making power and effectiveness of women leaders in politics and government, shifting culture around women’s public leadership and moving towards equality in public representation globally. We also aim to work towards a more inclusive and equitable world by advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through policy.

“This year’s VVEngage cohort represents an incredibly diverse and accomplished group of women,” said Manira Alva, Vice President of Political and Civic Engagement at Vital Voices. “It has never been more important to have women in political leadership leading intuitively and innovatively. We are very excited to work with these 37 women as they continue their political leadership journey, work to advance the SDGs, and create lasting change in their organizations, communities, and the world.”
Fellows will convene online for trainings and discussions throughout the Fellowship. To learn more about VVEngage, please visit the program page and follow #VVEngage on social media.
