WILD Network —
Women Innovators
& Leaders Network

WILD (Women Innovators and Leadership Development Network) supports women leaders to scale the impact of their work, and to thrive. They organize the Women in Global Development Leadership Forum – a movement to advance women’s leadership as well as equity, diversity and inclusion in the global development sector.

WILD and Coaching.com Foundation believe that leadership coaching is a key component for enabling social innovators to achieve and to sustain their maximum social impact. We’re on a mission to put data behind that belief.

Thirty members of WILD are selected for six months of pro-bono leadership coaching around their most pressing organizational, team and professional challenges. They are matched with coaches drawn from the Foundation’s international network and both leaders and coaches who will participate in action research in parallel to the coaching.

Our Foundation is building an evidence-based model for its coaching program. This means we are studying our approach and seeking data from our clients and coaches about the experience. We are analyzing the data we collect to demonstrate what’s working and the return on your investment of time and effort. The success measures we are studying look at the business and leader’s growth and development, and the leader’s experience working with a coach.
