Women Up aims to increase women's role in the global economy by providing leadership training, mentorship and support to girls and women through every stage of their lives and careers.
We are fortunate to live in an era in which women’s leadership and empowerment is in the spotlight. Exceptional organizations exist to help women in business, drive mentorship programs, promote investment in women and empower young girls.
Women Up complements these endeavors through collaboration with existing organizations and providing both experience and the technical tools to propel the movement to the next level.
We embrace a culture of co-creation, seeking the ideas, opinions and expertise of women and girls to direct our efforts to their greatest effect.
Founded by Care.com founder and CEO Sheila Lirio Marcelo and joined by Cora Neumann, founder of the Global First Ladies Alliance, Women Up programs provide mentorship, skill-building and inspiration to female leaders in every stage of their lives and careers and are currently being implemented in the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Brazil, South Africa and the Philippines.
