About Activate Leaders Programme

Looking to take your leadership journey further? Global Women’s Activate Leaders Programme is designed to empower and enable a new generation of diverse leaders.

Created by women, for women, the programme is designed to lift you from middle management to the next phase of your career—driving a mind-set shift, inspiring your career trajectory and helping you move from emerging to game-changing leader.
