About Vital Voices:
In 1997, Vital Voices was created to make space for women to be heard. Our founders knew then what has now become a universal truth: that women are essential to progress in their communities. Our world cannot move forward without their full participation. Today, our organization is the product of the women we have worked with, their insights into leadership, and our changing world.
We search the world for a woman leader with a daring vision. Then we partner with her to make that vision a reality. Through long-term investments that expand her skills, connections and visibility, we accelerate her efforts, improving the world for us all. Our groundbreaking approach is divided into four areas of focus: individualized investments, signature programs, network activation & advocacy, and thought leadership.
