"Female Wave of Change uses our Cultural Differences as our Strength, we are Complementary" - Cordelia Henry

The Female Wave of Change Circle of Wise Women is a group of people from all over the world who have earned our respect because of their wisdom, their life story, their knowledge and experience. They are committed to the purpose of Female Wave of Change to unite women changing the world into a better place: women from all walks of life who take responsibility for their own future, the future of the next generation and of the world.

The Circle of Wise Women contributes to develop the Vision and Mission of the Female Wave of Change. Doing so they work closely together with the Female Wave of Change powerful team of Board members, Ambassadors and Wavemakers.

They also play an active role in our online global activities, the local activities in the different countries and mentoring women to find the leader in them and be the leader to change the world.

The members of the Circle of Wise Women are our mentors, our guides, our teachers, our speakers, our advisors and our networkers.

“I join Female Wave of Change because I believe the only way to transforming humanity is through the aligned power of humanity. The new forces are crucial: empowered by the feminine values such as inclusion, cooperation and collaboration with our qualities. Female Wave of Change is a source of inspiration, the unstoppable wave of change that will transform how we treat our planet and each other. being on the Circle of Wise Women gives me the capability to connect globally and contribute to the wave with gained wisdom and power to keep the wave continuously active. I am not in to test the water. I am in to create waves”

“I join the Female Wave of Change because I strongly believe in diversity. So as a man I hope to make a contribution to diversity in the Circle. As a coach ‘Living to your Values’ is leading in my work, connected to ‘Guiding to your values’. In the world we live in, this is a tremendous task. It starts not only in your own life, but also in circles like this one. Spread out the invitation searching for values is my call. Searching means: learning. I hope to learn from all of you. Also I do hope to open discussions about rather ‘unspoken’ matters such as the position of gay women in several parts of the complex world in their work, their family, their religion. To me joining this circle hasn’t anything to do with ‘women vs men’, but ‘women and men in learning from eachother’

“I support Female Wave of Change because I believe that team work is an important ingredient of success. With such a group of women who are inspired to share and support, many incomplete circles would be completed, many incomplete projects could be supported, and many new ideas are yet to be presented; because we women are born to inspire, support, care and give but must continue to be strong and positive.”

I support Female Wave of Change because I believe that when powerful, committed women like the ones in this group come together, they will bring the positive change that’s needed for a world where all can thrive. When we introduce more of the currently underrepresented feminine values into leadership, such as sustainability and social responsibility, the result will be more wealth and freedom for all, and therefore more peace. As we know: When girls and women win, all win. This is a fantastic platform to join forces so together, we can co-create a more inclusive world.

“I join Female Wave of Change because I believe in the power of international collaboration. I am inspired by the broad network of women who are different in age, background and education but who have the same ambition. We can work together on world issues like climate change, poverty, clean water and sanitation and gender equality. Together we can find new solutions, ideas and make real impact!”

“I believe in Female Wave of Change because in the VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) we are living in, the feminine archetype of leadership is better adapted. Leadership is that nurtures the long-term; that looks at the whole, sees complex systems and seeks patterns to make sense and find a path; that understands the essence, the environment and the emotion not just the facts; that integrates feeling and intuition with thinking and reason to inspire and catalyze personal agency; and that acts from a place of learning rather than knowing is better adapted to a VUCA world. This is the Female Wave of Change the world needs.”

“I join Female Wave of Change because we can lift the voices of those marginalized. It does not start with anyone but us and for this to happen the VOICE needs to be attuned to HIGH. This is not only for us but the future generation of young people to listen to them, the hear them and decipher their voice. Female refugees struggle to have their voice heard for the changes they need for their communities and families”
