GW4W stands against all hatred, violence, discrimination and dehumanization of anyone. We express our grief and outrage about the recent racist attacks against Asian people and the killings in Atlanta. We stand in solidarity with all Asian and Pacific Islander communities everywhere. We ask all of you to stand with us and take action to call out discrimination, especially against marginalized communities. Systems that perpetuate dominance, misogyny and racism must end. It takes all of us – everyone across the gender arc – to stand up and speak out. We urge you to join us and use your voice for good. Together, we can build a more compassionate world for all.
More good together,
Mim Senft, Nancy Board, Lyn Davis and the GW4W Leadership Team – March 2021

Empowering healthy female leaders at all levels for a more sustainable world.
Welcome to the GW4W community! We are a diverse group of dedicated professionals, community leaders, researchers, students and entrepreneurs that are connecting to create positive change by empowering more healthy female leadership – at all levels – for a more sustainable world.
As a non-profit organization, GW4W connects the unique health and wellbeing issues that impact women with our ability to lead well. We look at how these points play into unconscious bias about how women are seen as leaders, including issues such as maternity bias and ageism.
GW4W is non-political and believes that pay equity, healthcare equity and leadership equity are human rights issues that impact women from all backgrounds. We believe that we need diverse leaders working together – including and perhaps especially men – in developing solutions to help empower more healthy female leadership.
We invite you to learn about our mission, join us at an event, share your story, and use your voice for positive change.
“What excites me the most about Global Women 4 Wellbeing is the diversity of thought and people that it brings together. Every time I’m at a GW4W event, the people I meet and the work they are doing is just fantastic…As a business owner myself of a women’s health company, I’ve made incredible partnerships that are just the beginning of what could be.”
“What I love about GW4W is that it’s a community on a mission to build each other up. At GW4W, everyone is encouraged to use their voice, everyone is listened to, and everyone learns from each other. I’m thankful to GW4W for teaching me that by empowering women in society will move forward for the better of us all, and most importantly, that we mustn’t stop moving!”

“I am honored to be in your network. Thanks so much. You and your “tribe” are such an amazing organization.”
– Suzanne Nance, GW4W Member, Global Health Promotion Coordinator and Author, “Lead From the Top,” Chicago, IL – USA
“Attending the GW4W March event in London really opened my eyes and made me realise the lack of younger voices. It was highlighted to me that if we don’t have younger voices then we aren’t going to reach equality. Once I talked with Nancy Board about some sexism that has occurred at school, I was ready to take the next steps for a more equal world and fight the battle using my own experiences. Thank you for listening so intently Nancy – it had an impact on me.”

Caregiving, Leadership, and Financial Wellbeing: Connecting the Issues That Hold Women Back
GW4W hosts Accelerator events throughout the world bringing more diverse voices to the table. Thought leaders come together to share insights and create awareness of how we can become healthier leaders and close the gaps that hold us back. These fun and interactive events offer opportunities to build important relationships and collaborate for change.
V.O.I.C.E. from some of our attendees
“Meeting other people, the ‘levelness’ of the event, it wasn’t man hating, it was common sense. It was about a re-set and the importance of well being and everything I believe in.”
“What I liked was the kindness of the organizing teams and your hospitality. As a student, I felt welcomed. I also appreciated that in an event like this, we could hear the voice of men – which seems to me to be essential today on these subjects.”
“It was great to hear so many stories from the speakers who are trying to make women stand out and have their own voice.”
“Possibility to interact with experienced leaders in the field willing to find ways to connect women AND men to address the root causes of the lack of progress on gender equality.”
“The diversity of women attending, the variety of experiences shared, the instant camaraderie.”
“The GW4W Summer Get Together left us in awe, impressed, moved & inspired. We talked, laughed, ate, drank and most importantly – we listened & shared. This is what happens when passionate, open, talented & committed people come together in support of a great cause. It’s the start of something, that aims to change the world for the necessary recognition & equality of women, which benefits us all.”
“I can’t be an effective leader if I’m not taking care of myself.”
“What more can I say – It was a fabulous evening – Can’t wait for the next one!”
