Applications are now open for the VV Visionaries Program to support women visionaries who are shaping the future they wish to see, the perception of what defines a leader, and what it takes to become a leader – in their own way.

The VV Visionaries program in partnership with the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund (ELELF), the charitable fund of Estée Lauder, was created to support the next generation of emerging leaders who are redefining leadership in their everyday lives.  

The VV Visionaries program invests in trailblazing women by increasing their access to leadership training and the networks that sustain them. Together with the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund, this signature program will champion women leaders across diverse sectors, industries, and experiences who want to create positive social impact in their communities and beyond.

When women advance, the world succeeds. Whether you are an entrepreneur, activist, non-profit leader, or someone with a bold vision for change, you can have a profound impact. They need leaders across every industry and every community who use their power, influence, and passion to make positive change. And they know that women’s leadership will accelerate progress in their communities, offices, and boardrooms.
