A series of discussions in international development organizations in 2018-2019 showed that while many development practitioners see feminist leadership as both a goal and a tool to transform our sector, few could explain what it actually looks like. 

This series aims to change that. 

With short videos submitted by a diverse and representative group of development practitioners, social change activists, and feminist leaders, this series aims at sharing what feminist leadership does – and can – look like in the global development sector and beyond. In collaboration with FAIR SHARE of Women Leaders, we hope to spark discussion about how feminist leadership, its tools, values, and methodologies, can help us transform our work for social impact.

Videos will be shared in the media as well as at various international gatherings, and used to spark discussions within teams and organizations eager to embrace feminist leadership. Tools and curriculum will also be produced for our wider community as we grow and learn about best practices together. Overall, we hope to spark discussion about how feminist leadership, its tools, values, and methodologies, can help us transform our work for social impact.

Stay tuned and join the conversation!
