Over the summer, Global Women's Leadership Network reached a milestone of impact through our events, activities and programs. We'd like to share our recent successes and show how your support has helped us all move to a better world built on gender equality, human rights and sustainable development.
Women Leaders for the World 2012
More than 20 women leaders from around the world traveled to Silicon Valley in July to participate in this year's Women Leaders for the World (WLW) program. Each leader presented her vision and breakthrough project at the July 26 community event that was attended by over 200 people. Learn more

Leader of Impact Award
To celebrate the eighth year of the WLW program, GWLN held its inaugural Leader of Impact contest
which received nearly 12,000 votes from 79 countries. Sandhya Puchalapalli
was the recipient of the first Leader of Impact Award for her entry about ending female foeticide and infanticide in India. Read more about Sandhya
and her endless work to ensure women survive and are empowered to exercise choices over their lives. We thank Sandhya for being such an inspiring keynote speaker at the WLW 2012 community event.
