Empowering healthy female leaders for a more sustainable world.
Welcome to the GW4W community! We are a diverse group of dedicated professionals, community leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs that are connecting to create positive change by empowering more healthy female leadership 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.
GW4W produced our first white paper in March, 2018. For a free copy, click on the button below to download.
Caregiving, Leadership, and Financial Wellbeing: Connecting the Issues That Hold Women Back
Research. Inspiration. Leadership. Mentoring.
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!”

Leading from Within – The Inner Voice. Leadership is an “inside” job. This ½ or full day workshop addresses the inner voice that holds women back from achieving their full potential. Given that at least 25% of women have experienced trauma at some point in their life, this workshop is designed to create a safe space for honest conversation and will deliver crucial self-care steps for moving beyond fear, doubt and shame. This experiential program provides opportunities to break through barriers within a supportive environment as we explore the healthy female leader.
Bridging the Gender Gap – Healthy Leadership. This experiential workshop is designed to bring women and men together to create a more collaborative path forward. Designed to consider each company’s culture, resources and goals, it provides deeper exploration of the biases around masculine and feminine leadership styles. This interactive format will move its participants towards creating healthier leadership models, regardless of gender. This workshop is offered through Motivity Partnerships and the Compassionate Masculinity Project by Sympónia Studios, and can be customized for 90-minutes, ½ day or full day program.
