Should I be applying for the Global edition or a Regional edition?
When choosing between the global and regional Women of the Future projects, consider your impact, goals, and focus. The global project has a wider reach but is limited to featuring only 100 women worldwide. Apply for this edition if your priority is global impact.

This focus allows for a diverse representation of industries and roles. Choose the edition that aligns with your personal and professional goals to make the most impact.
Do I need to live in a Region to quality for the Regional edition?
In order to qualify for a regional edition you need to either come from or live and work in that region.
