Women's Global Leadership Initiative (WGLI) is a highly organized and impactful organization. They are actively working towards their mission and have brought on a dedicated team to make it happen. I was surprised to see how effectively they managed my application, interview, onboarding, and projects. Everyone is so kind and genuinely wants to be where they are and support you where you are. I've heard multiple times about how WGLI wants its volunteers to grow from their volunteer experience, taking away new learnings and applying it to their goals. I think it is spectacular that is one of the organization's priorities. I can't wait to continue contributing to WGLI and its remarkable team and mission.

Volunteering with the Women’s Global Leadership Initiative has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me. I started with this organization by attending their Leadership Workshop Series which turned out to be a crucial personal development step in growing my career. My favorite parts were the interactive hands-on workshops committed to strengthening leadership skills and also being able to network and surround myself by a wonderful group of women who are truly committed to empowering themselves and their community. Now I’m involved with a remarkable team, learning great skills that can be applied to both my personal and professional life, and striving to encourage both individual and community leadership development. Check out our mission and let’s make a difference!

I have been volunteering as a Public Relations Coordinator for WGLI for a year and I love every moment of it. WGLI allows me to expand on my passion in life: helping women fulfill their potential in all aspects—personally and professionally. From our hands-on CEO to our dynamic Directors, from our mission and values to our community outreach—we are moving mountains. If you have a calling or a vision to make a difference in gender equality, leadership development, and economical growth—this is a great volunteer opportunity that will create a network of women at your disposal. I feel honored to serve on the WGLI team and will continue to do so for years to come. It has impacted my career and allowed me to fulfill my passion in life.

As a recent college graduate I was in a full-time job that was paying my bills, but was not fulfilling to me whatsoever. I was looking for an outlet to use my time in a way that felt meaningful for me both personally and professionally. I was interested in developing my skills with marketing and social media – and the folks at WGLI gave me the opportunity to do just that. I was able to work alongside both the CEO of the organization and the Public Relations Director. I felt extremely supported during my time with WGLI and am unbelievably grateful for the experience I gained from them. When I applied for my next job – it was the connections and experience I gained at WGLI that landed me my dream job working full-time in the world of marketing. For anyone who is looking for an inspiring and motivating organization dedicated to the advancement of women – look no further.

I recently joined WGLI and honestly can't say enough how much I enjoy contributing to the mission and working with other volunteers who dedicate their time by helping to "create a community of women with the confidence and determination to serve as leaders in personal, professional, community, regional and national spheres of influence." If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity and truly want to make a difference in women's lives - this is the organization to join!

Such a great organization. I am honored to join the team and be a part of this movement along side of highly successful and intelligent women in a wide range of industries. If you get the opportunity to volunteer, donate or participate to some capacity I highly recommend doing so!
