About A Movement to Ignite and Empower a New Generation of Women Leaders

What Will It Take is a media, collaboration, learning, and social engagement platform that inspires, connects, educates and engages women everywhere to advance in all levels of leadership and take action.

What Will It Take acts as a connective tissue bringing together existing stakeholders and champions of women’s leadership across industries on a single platform to foster collaboration and coordination.

We believe there is no limit to what people can achieve when mission and outcome are aligned.

What Will It Take features both in-person live events and a digital platform to encourage women across the country to move the dialogue forward about women’s leadership.

We act as a megaphone for the voices and organizations of the women’s leadership movement and spur on an ongoing campaign to educate, inspire and prepare women across the country to become civically engaged and run for elected office, as well as pursue other positions of leadership and use their voices towards change.

We will provide a centralized space to connect women and allies to organizations, trainings, events, actions, tools, and other helpful resources.
