Accelerating Women Change-Makers
The Shakti Fellowship is also for companies looking to nominate high-potential women leaders with a mandate to deliver a major Sustainability or D&I project. The program equips them with cutting-edge skills, tools and frameworks as well as one-on-one coaching/mentoring to design and implement in-house.
The Fellowship Program additionally facilitates the active collaboration between the change-makers to innovate synergies between their sustainability projects so that they amplify each other and create the systemic change that is needed.
In support of the UN’s goal of achieving the 17 SDGs by 2030, the Shakti Fellowship’s vision and mission is to develop and engage 100,000 women change-makers globally by 2030. Who collaborate to create Peace, Prosperity & Beauty through the exchange of multiple forms of capital.
Read the brochure to know more about Impact Projects launched through the Shakti Fellowship. The key ‘deliverable’ of the Shakti Fellowship is your Shakti project – an action learning project where you apply all that you have learned in the program, to conceive, design and launch a game-changing initiative: A tangible product or service, that innovates new ways to Peace, Prosperity & Beauty through the exchange of multiple forms of capital.
This year we are especially looking for Climate Change-makers. With projects that address Climate change directly, or contribute indirectly through innovative sustainability practices.

What Participants Say
Shakti Leadership suggests that an effective leader needs to learn to move effortlessly between four poles in order to be whole: Masculine (hierarchy, accountability) and Feminine (collaboration, harmony); and Parent (wisdom, responsibility) and Child (joy, playfulness) or as Nilima says we become the Wise Fool of Tough Love. This is coupled with the idea that we are all one people and so peace is our higher purpose. I can’t tell you how proud I am to have been a part of this journey in partnership with talented, dedicated women who have made this program an important leadership tool for conscious capitalists everywhere. The insights and lessons continue to unfold and I whole-heartedly encourage others to attend. Read more…
The last 365 days have been some of the worst and very best days of my life. Inner transformational work is grueling, and to do this I had to come face to face with my ego, defense mechanisms, belief systems, shadows and core wound. All of which was repressing my full and best potential. More importantly I wasn’t fully sharing my gifts with the world and living in my purpose. I am proud of this work and so excited to start to share this journey with others.
The Shakti Leadership Fellowship has been a true game changer for me personally, professionally and everything in between, especially because of the UNBELIEVABLE women who are a part of it. If you are dreaming of an amazing education, foundation and true sisterhood look no further than this program.
