To maximise our impact, we partner with organizations who have direct access to the people we are trying to help, including our cornerstone partner, the International Red Cross (ICRC).


Cornerstone partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)

Partnering with the ICRC, we aim to have a direct and measurable impact. As a collective of Global Women Leaders, we share the principles and action bias of the ICRC and believe that through partnership we can achieve greater impact.

The primary focus of our work with the ICRC is in the development of innovative finance tools. Global Women Leaders were instrumental in the successful launch of the ICRC's world-first Humanitarian Impact Bond. We continue to work to extend and scale the development of innovative finance tools for greater impact, via a variety of initiatives.
