Invest in a Woman, Invest in an Entire Community

Women across the world have the capacity to change their lives, to change their communities and to change their countries. When given the right opportunities and tools, women play a key role to bring about the political, social, economic, environmental, and cultural changes required to make their societies more inclusive and equal.

Yet, the issue of women's representation in public life in general and in positions of leadership, in particular, is a global challenge that the world continues to face. Too often, decisions are being made for and about women, not by women.

Lead Like a Girl

In recognition of these needs and trends, the Parliamentary Centre is launching a new international program dedicated to empowering young women and girls today to see themselves as the leaders of tomorrow: Women AHEAD.

From the small-business owner in Burkina Faso to the aspiring engineer in Manitoba, Women AHEAD is about bringing together young women and girls from diverse backgrounds to build coalitions and drive progress to improve the representation of women in leadership positions.

It's a place for women and girls to support and mentor each other. It’s a community of women leaders dedicated to inspiring others and making a difference. It’s you, it’s all of us.


**We recognize that the term “women” may not encompass the diverse identities of our audience. Please note, we strive to create an inclusive environment for all trans, non-binary and agender persons within our organization. If you have any concerns or questions about participation, don't be scared and reach out!
