The Feminist Leadership Hub

What is Feminist Leadership, and what does it look like in practice?

Which resources exist to explore and deepen my understanding of Feminist Leadership?

How can I connect with other experienced and curious Feminist Leaders?

More and more people and organisations are looking for a community to explore their thoughts, questions and ideas around Feminist Leadership. Over 4,000 people registered for our webinar series on Feminist Leadership, with one participant telling us she felt “like my thoughts and feelings of the past years had finally found a home in which to resonate.” Another said: “I would like to be in touch with all the participants after the webinar series to have a community where I can constantly seek advice and share my learnings.”

That’s why, together with our partners One Future Collective and support from the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Alliance for Gender Equality in Europe, we’re building a virtual home for curious and experienced Feminist Leaders of all genders.

Currently in the pilot phase with all those who participated in the conceptualisation process, we will launch the space publicly in Q1 2024. Sign up now to be notified of the public launch!

Meet our steering committee members

To support the development of the governance of the Hub between now and November 2023, we have selected five organisations following a public application process to form a steering committee. Learn more and meet the five members on our shared Medium page with our partners One Future Collective.

One Future Collective designed the participatory process to lead us towards a concept for a virtual home for Feminist Leaders - visit our shared blog to explore our reflections from that journey.

What will this space look like?

Based on a 6-month, multi-format participatory process, together with One Future Collective we developed a concept note based on the ideas, wishes and needs of the Hub’s potential future users. Based on this, we are building a space where social impact practitioners at all stages of their Feminist Leadership journeys can learn individually and collectively, connect with peers, mentors and potential collaborators, and find/provide support to one another. We also intend this to be a community-led space, so will develop structures and processes for member input and participation.

Who is the Hub for?

The hub is for civil society/social impact practitioners who are either curious about Feminist Leadership and want to know more, or who are familiar with the concept and consider themselves seasoned practioners.

We do not define feminism, Feminist Leadership or the audience for this hub in relation to biological definitions of sex. This space is intended for people of all genders who would like to find companions on their Feminist Leadership journey.

How was the concept developed?

FAIR SHARE of Women Leaders initiated this project with financial support from the Heinrich Böll Foundation. We asked One Future Collective to design and implement a process that to meaningfully involve stakeholders in the Hub’s conceptualisation. This included stakeholder mapping*, a review of existing platforms, semi-structured listening spaces and focus group discussions with stakeholders, an online survey, virtual office hours, and a digital hackathon. All of this input formed the basis for the concept note, and we are now moving forward with implementation in partnership with One Future Collective.

*Stakeholder mapping included activists, consultants, social impact organisations and donors with interest in/affinity with feminist philanthropy, feminist activism, and/or Feminist Leadership. Focus Group Discussions included experts on particular topics such as accessibility, governance, and community-building.

How will it be run?

While FAIR SHARE of Women Leaders initiated the project, we are now moving forward into the pilot phase in partnership with One Future Collective and are excited to explore models of governance based on Feminist Leadership principles. We have formed a steering committee of five organisations to support this process – learn more here.

Who is supporting this project?

We are very grateful to have received support throughout this process from the Heinrich Böll Foundation as well as Alliance for Gender Equality in Europe. However, these are both one-year grants and we will need further support to fulfil the Hub’s potential and ensure the sustainability of this space. If you’re interested in building this home for Feminist Leaders with us, please contact

How can I join?

We are currently running a pilot of the Hub with people who have been involved with the project development so far and other partners in our network. You can sign up for the public launch of the Hub, planned for early 2024, here.

This project is supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
