The USOW Ambassador Program is an opportunity for current and future leaders passionate about improving gender equity, no matter their background or previous experience. Our team ensures that Ambassadors have the tools, resources, connections, and support they need to tell the story of women’s power and make a measurable change in their communities.
A cohort of 90 women across 44 states & territories, Ambassadors make up a national grassroots network representing diverse communities from coast to coast and everywhere in between. They share one common goal: creating intersectional gender equity through collective power and community building.
The program starts with a series of trainings and cohort activities to help Ambassadors begin building their national and local network. With each USOW activation, Ambassadors receive additional resources to organize in their community.
What ambassadors do
Grow a network
Grow a network of local supporters interested in taking action, focusing on outreach to individuals who haven’t previously done so or are looking to get more involved. Connect with local nonprofits and other organizations to participate in events or actions.
Bring people together
Collaborate with the USOW team to engage in local adaptations of national campaigns by bringing together stakeholders, such as government officials, business leaders, local non-profits, activists, and community members, working on gender equity across issue areas.
Identify individuals and organizations doing innovative, groundbreaking, and critical work in their local community that should be highlighted on USOW’s media channels and amongst their community of USOW supporters.
