Rising Stars are action-oriented women who lead the change in their communities, schools, businesses, and beyond. Being an inspiring leader is not an easy nor straight path – invest in your leadership development to help you reach your goals. Do you see your potential?
WHY BECOME A RISING STAR?
As a Rising Star, you will gain lifelong access to our dynamic, always-evolving Leadership Development programmes and services, ranging from mentorship and education funding to leadership opportunities and a global community of professionals.
AS PART OF OUR LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY, YOU CAN ACCESS
- COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES
Leadership may be defined by your actions, but what you learn is refined through reflection. A mentor can be that person who listens, challenges, and encourages you at any point in your life. As a Rising Star, you have the option to match with a dedicated, online Mentor to work towards your goals and actions, reflect on your challenges and achievements, and offer different insights and perspectives. Our Mentors are a diverse group of global professionals who are selected for their passion and commitment to support women leaders.
CURRICULUM FOR CHANGEMAKERS
Setting goals and identifying strategies to achieve them are important for every leader. We collaborate with our Partners to design and craft leadership lessons that help bring clarity and focus to your personal and professional development. Topics are designed to be personal so that you can reflect and apply the lessons to your own experience.
Share your journeys, make new friends, find supporters, and expand your professional networks. When you join Wedu, you become a part of our global community of changemakers. From fellow Rising Stars and Mentors, Partners, and Programme Participants, our Community is here to uplift and support you along every step of your journey.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
With the support of our global Partners, we identify and offer opportunities for you to put your leadership into action. These opportunities are curated to match your needs and ambitions, and they include conferences, scholarships, workshops, trainings and more!
Access to funding is one of the biggest barriers preventing women leaders from obtaining their education. Where loans are inaccessible to many and scholarships are limited and competitive, our Future Income Sharing Agreements are both accessible and affordable.
