This year, she stands among 20 visionary women leaders from across the globe, convening at the Vital Voices headquarters in Washington DC. 

Vital Voices Global Partnership, led by influential figures such as Hillary Clinton, is dedicated to empowering women leaders who are making significant impacts in their communities. The organization's support has propelled leaders to prestigious accolades, including the Nobel Peace Prize, and fostered groundbreaking activism, such as that of Malala Yousafzai.

The VV Visionaries Program
The VV Visionaries program, in partnership with the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund (ELELF), was created to support the next generation of emerging leaders who are redefining leadership in their everyday lives. This program invests in trailblazing women by increasing their access to leadership training and the networks that sustain them. 

Three cohorts of 50 women visionaries over the age of 18 participate in a 7-week immersive virtual experience built on the proven leadership model of Vital Voices, incorporating lessons in leadership from Estée Lauder executives and Vital Voices Global Network leaders. Participants from all three cohorts have the chance to be selected for an annual in-person experience that provides deeper training and investment in their personal leadership journeys. 

Following completion of the cohort, participants join the Vital Voices community of over 20,000 changemakers across 185 countries, each daring to reimagine a more equitable world for all.
