Why I started WILD
I’ve heard from thousands of people across the international development sector who want the tools to grow their impact.
Visionary leaders provide the momentum for effective international development. By equipping and empowering these leaders, with the leadership tools we can increase their impact and solve the world’s toughest challenges, faster.
What you’ll gain from WILD events
Get actionable insights
You leave every WILD event with concrete, transferable learning that you can apply to your life and your organization immediately. We share research-based models, tools and techniques from internationally recognized leadership development experts and from the global development and aid sectors.
Contribute to the conversation
Inequitable environments are detrimental to everyone working in them – and meaningful change can only happen when everyone is involved. That’s why we welcome and include male and dominant perspectives alongside underrepresented voices in our conversations around inclusion.
Step into leadership opportunities
Regardless of your career stage or job role, you are in a position to shape and impact your workplace. We connect leaders at different stages of their careers to learn from one another’s experiences and inspire each other to greater effectiveness in their own context.
Hear from different voices
Expanding our understanding of others’ experiences and points of view lets us become more empathetic and inclusive leaders. To facilitate this and challenge unconscious bias around “expertise”, we invite people from across backgrounds, countries and leadership levels to shape our events, offer fully-funded WILD Forum fellowships to women in aid recipient countries, and hold open calls for speakers.
By unpacking what went right, we can also learn from each other’s successes – and take away proven strategies to apply elsewhere.
