Young Leaders Councils

The next generations of leaders in New York, the San Francisco Bay Area & Washington, DC

The Vital Voices Young Leaders Councils are made up of the next generation of leaders. These cross-sector, bipartisan young professional networks raise the visibility and brand awareness of Vital Voices while also providing insight into how Vital Voices can engage in their communities. Vital Voices currently has Young Leaders Councils in Washington, DC, New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

As part of this innovative group we would work with you to provide the following curated experiences and opportunities:

  • Recognition as a passionate leader committed to the advancement of women and girls;
  • Opportunity to engage with Vital Voices network of 18,000+ leaders all over the world;
  • Be part of a network of other active, passionate and committed women leaders at the top of their field who are key to advancing gender equity around the world;
  • Have first access to Vital Voices’ signature events, convening and engagement opportunities.
