Supporting global development leaders to scale their impact & thrive






A global movement developing strong and inclusive leaders

Hunger, economic inequality, climate change, gender inequality.

These are just some of the problems that people working in the global development sector are tackling.

It takes the work of NGOs, academic institutions, private sector companies, youth-led organizations, consultants and more to solve these problems.

What if we doubled the impact of these professionals? Just think about how much faster we can solve the world's problems. 

And that’s what WILD is about. 

WILD is a social enterprise that supports global development leaders at all stages of their careers, and their employers, to become even stronger leaders and to foster cultures of inclusive leadership.

WILD invests in the leadership skills of women and men tackling the world’s gnarliest problems to develop essential leadership behaviors:  how to be persuasive, how to claim your achievements, how to have difficult conversations, how to include people from diverse backgrounds.

Because, shouldn’t we also have the strongest talent working on the world’s toughest problems?
