Membership to Global Women is by invitation only from an existing member, with this sponsoring member taking a lead role in the process.
Note that nominations will not be accepted without a Global Women Member sponsoring the potential candidate, and it is the sponsor's responsibility to mentor the potential candidate through the process.
