VVLead Fellowship Program Application Now Open Through November 23rd

I am thrilled to invite you to apply for the VVLead Fellowship Program!
Designed for women leaders who are committed to ending economic disparities for women and girls, violence against women and/or harmful cultural practices, VVLead engages both emerging and established women leaders in the business, non-profit, advocacy, media and/or public service/government sectors. Through opportunities tailored to meet the needs, challenges and contextual differences of participants, VVLead is comprised of online courses, in-person exchanges, networking and peer training sessions, resource libraries and working and discussion groups. For more information, please see the attached overview of programmatic offerings and components.  http://www.vitalvoices.org/vvleadfellowship
Vital Voices, the preeminent non-governmental organization that identifies, trains and empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs around the globe, embarked on the groundbreaking partnership with the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID) in 2013 through the formation of VVLead. 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. The VVLead Fellowship Program is a critical step in this response, offering participants unique opportunities to exchange information, obtain resources and tools, mentor and be mentored and receive vital training through offerings tailored to meet their needs, goals and objectives.
I hope that you will consider applying to take part in this unique opportunity. VVLead applications may be accessed at http://www.vitalvoices.org/vvleadfellowship via the “Apply Here” link. Applications for VVLead will be accepted until Sunday, November 23rd, 2014.
Additionally, should you work with a women leader whom you think would be interested in applying for the VVLead Fellowship Program, please don’t hesitate to send the application along.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, time and effort.
