WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Anh Thu Nguyen,

Chair 2019-2020

As the previous Chair of WIL, I have had the pleasure of being surrounded by an empowering network of women, who have not only improved WIL as an association but also each other by sharing knowledge and relevant experiences. As a Member, I have learned a lot about my potential as a leader, colleague, and friend. the workshops have allowed me to develop specific skill sets that every person can benefit from professionally, socially, and personally.

Daniela Alvara,

Member 2018-2019

I was part of the pioneer cohort of WIL. At the time, I was Chair of the UNICEF Student Team The Hague. WIL played an important role in giving me  the technical and community support that I needed to become an effective leader.

Sara Kemppainen,

Founder of WIL

We founded WIL in the spring of 2018 to empower young women entering the professional world by catering relevant workshops, inspiring talks, and providing networking events where new connections could be made between seasoned professionals and aspiring youth. Within our first year, we witnessed a number of our members gaining confidence, widening their networks, in addition to securing real-life opportunities in the form of jobs and internships. It was exhilarating to notice the difference it was making in our community!
