Opportunity To Apply For 2014 VVLead Fellowship Program
Launched in January 2013, this program is designed for emerging and established women leaders who are committed to ending economic disparities for women and girls, violence against women and forced/early marriage, through business, service provision, advocacy, media or public service.

Vital Voices Global Partnership, the preeminent non-governmental organization that identifies, trains and empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs around the globe, embarked on this groundbreaking partnership with the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID) through the formation of VVLead in late 2012. Recognizing that in order to advance the causes of women, women themselves must connect with, empower, equip and inspire one another at all levels of society, Vital Voices and DFID are committed to helping create a unified response, not just from women’s rights activists and sectoral experts, but also from a wide range of professionals and practitioners across fields and methodologies. VVLead is a critical step in this response.

VVLead offers Fellows the opportunity to work through a combination of online and in-person activities to build critical knowledge, skills and abilities through targeted trainings; foster support and empowerment via exchanges and peer-mentoring; share best practices and lessons learned across issue areas and regions; use challenge grants to develop innovative models to address longstanding problems; and focus on personal leadership and professional goals and objectives. For more information, please see the attached overview of programmatic offerings and view the VVLead Prezi at

I hope that you will consider applying to take part in this unique opportunity. VVLead applications may be accessed at Applications for VVLead will be accepted until Sunday, November 3rd at 5 p.m. EST.

Additionally, should you work with a women leader whom you think would be interested in applying for VVLead, please don’t hesitate to send the application along.
