The Vital Voices Visionaries Program for Emerging Women Leaders

The Vital Voices Visionaries Program for Emerging Women Leaders

Applications are now open for the 2024 Vital Voices (VV) Visionaries program. A signature program supporting women visionaries who are shaping the future they wish to see, the perception of what defines a leader, and what it takes to become a leader – in their own way.

The VV Visionaries program, a partnership between Vital Voices Global Partnership and the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund, the charitable fund of Estée Lauder, to support the next generation of emerging leaders who are redefining leadership in their everyday lives.

Together with the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund, we aim to champion women leaders across diverse sectors, industries, and experiences who want to create positive social impact in their communities and beyond.

When women advance, the world succeeds. Whether you are an entrepreneur, activist, non-profit leader, or someone with a bold vision for change, you can have a profound impact. We need leaders across every industry and every community who use their power, influence, and passion to make positive change. And we know that women’s leadership will accelerate progress in our communities, offices, and boardrooms.
