The Program

The USOW Ambassador Program trains, connects, and activates a national grassroots network of current and future leaders passionate about achieving gender equity, no matter their background or previous experience. They share one common goal: creating intersectional gender equity through collective power and community building.

The program starts with a series of training and cohort activities to help Ambassadors develop the tools and skills they need to begin building their national and local network. With each USOW activation and campaign, Ambassadors receive additional resources to organize in their community.

What ambassadors do

Develop Skills

Take Action

Lead on local adaptations of USOW national campaigns by bringing together stakeholders– such as government officials, business leaders, local non-profits, activists, and community members– to advance gender equity across issue areas.

Build Community

Collaborate with the USOW team and fellow Ambassadors to strengthen the gender equity community by sharing best practices and resources and channeling collective power. Connect with local nonprofits, organizations, and supporters interested in taking action.
