Advancing disability rights and leadership globally®

In honor of International Women’s Day, March 8th, 2024, we are proud to celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of disabled women activists worldwide.

Their resilience, strength, and unwavering commitment to gender equality embody the spirit of “Loud, Proud, and Passionate!®. On this day, we especially want to recognize the achievements of our alumni of the Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD), MIUSA’s signature program with a powerful network of more than 250 women with disabilities representing 89 countries.


As we are amplifying the voices of disabled women leaders today, we invite you to watch this special video message from WILD alumna Ramatu Princess Kanu from Sierra Leone. Princess shares how the WILD program changed her life. As Executive Director of an organization she founded after WILD, she is now leading critically-important work in her community, addressing issues of sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence for women and girls with disabilities.

From advocating for disability rights to championing social justice causes, disabled women activists are at the forefront of transformative change in their communities. As we commemorate the invaluable contributions of these incredible leaders from around the world today, we also invite you to join us by investing in the next cohort of WILD women.

Join us by supporting the next WILD program!


We are thrilled to announce the launch of our fundraising campaign for the next International WILD program. WILD empowers disabled women leaders from around the globe, providing them with essential skills, resources, and networks to advance their advocacy work and create lasting change in their communities.

Your generous contribution to WILD will fund participant scholarships, interactive workshops, language translation, travel expenses and more, so that the next cohort of disabled women leaders can access this life-changing program.

Join us this International Women’s Day as we celebrate the indomitable spirit of disabled women activists and pledge your commitment to building the pipeline of women leaders. Together, let us invest in a future with women with disabilities leading the way!
