Hear from participants of International Rivers' Women and Rivers Leadership Accelerator Program

In recognition of the critical role women play in shaping water solutions and the support needed to grow their impact, International Rivers partnered with Women’s Earth Alliance and launched the first Women and Rivers Accelerator Program in 2022 to strengthen the global movement of women river defenders.

The first accelerator brought together 23 women river protectors, representing 10 nations protecting more than 50 rivers around the world. The group created a transformative partnership to empower women’s leadership.
