Introducing the most life-changing network you’ll ever be part of

When we support and empower refugee women, the entire community benefits. We see it every day.

That’s why we’re proud to have launched the Leading Women Fund in 2020 – a unique and dynamic community of donors committed to supporting refugee women all over the world.

Every donation to the Fund goes directly to projects that empower women, building their resilience and providing opportunities to help them realise their potential.

But that’s not all.

When you donate, you’ll connect with a network of dynamic Australian women who are passionate about empowering female refugees around the world. You’ll be part of a community that's a force for change.

  • You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in our second phase trial of the ground-breaking app, Connecting Worlds, which gives Australian donors the chance to have text conversations with the refugee women supported by the Fund.
  • You’ll be invited to networking and learning events (in real life and online) with other leading women, such as Australia for UNHCR’s newest Ambassador and Boost Juice founder, Janine Allis and female UNHCR experts from the field.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to contribute your skills and knowledge to shape future Leading Women Fund projects, co-creating the initiatives that will help change refugee women’s lives.
  • You’ll receive our regular curated Leading Women Fund network newsletter with inside stories from the field and profiles of your fellow Leading Women Fund donors, plus you’ll be invited to join our exclusive LinkedIn group for network members.
