WILD is committed to women who are working for positive social change, whether as social entrepreneurs or working for positive societal change in the international development or domestically.


Our mission: to help women scale their impact – on the world, within their organizations – and keep their sanity in the process. Work-life balance, learning to delegate, taking credit for your achievements, all these issues are in the mix. 

Our goal: to break through old stereotypes and limitations about what it means to be a woman functioning in the social change sector.

And, we ask, what could be more “wild” than that?
