Global Women's Leadership Network has advanced and transformed the vision of nearly 200 leaders around the world through our transformational leadership development programs. As a result, hundreds of thousands of women and girls in countries who have the greatest need have benefited from the work of the GWLN alumni community. Whether their mission is gender equality, education, maternal health or child mortality, our community of leaders work endlessly to improve the future of those they serve.
There are three ways you can learn more about our GWLN Alumni: by year, by region and by each graduate’s alignment to work towards one or more Millennium Development Goals (MDG). MDG refers to the eight Millennium Development Goals that were created in 2000 by the United Nations member states to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. 189 nations have made a promise to achieve these goals by the year 2015.
Watch a video created by the United Nations that explains, through a child's voice, how the Millennium Development Goals are helping millions to fight poverty and hunger, reduce child and maternal mortality, prevent disease, promote education and more.
