Started in 2011 in Brussels by Laura Westring and Jennifer Mackie, Leadarise is an informal network for young women who lead, with alumni in Brussels, Dublin, Edinburgh and New York City. The project is currently led by Carmen Vera Garcia in Brussels.
In Brussels our energetic volunteers create welcoming networking events and exciting peer leadership trainings for young women who aspire to lead a better world.
Our ambition is to build a dynamic community of young women practising values-based leadership, in any sector, who wish to learn from each other and help each other through sharing their skills and stories.
Through our work we want young women to be recognised as the inspiring leaders and role models they already are and we want young women to feel confident leading as the most open, generous and authentic versions of themselves.
We believe the most powerful thing we can do to close the equality gap is to help young women help each other.
To find out about upcoming events, simply follow us on facebook or twitter.
We take pride in welcoming everyone to our events, regardless of age or gender.
