"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 FWoC because its mission resonates strongly with my own, because I know that feminine values are key to our present and future, because I have witnessed and benefited from the power of women’s circles to influence positively individuals, communities and organisations, and simply because it is pure joy to contribute my drop to the wave of change.”

“I joined FWoC because I believe that collectively we can empower women to become true agents of change. As a researcher, I learned that when women are authentic and stand by feminine values, they can overcome the structural barriers that hold them back. Awareness, information and open dialogue are at the heart creating a more inclusive, diverse and compassionate world for all of us, women and men. As a mother of 3 girls, it is my duty to join the conversation. “

“I join FWoC because as I always say, my middle name is Serendipity. Female Wave of Change is like a gift that I wished for from the Universe, wanting to reach and touch more women across geographies. The Values of this organisation and the drive of the amazing women on the Board resonate, note for note, with what I have been doing all my entrepreneurial life. The Female Energy is a Latent Powerhouse. And those of us who have been privileged to know and use its potential, have a duty to pay it forward. To ignite it in every woman across the globe, be a woman’s woman, build them up and help realise that potential. Gently, firmly, surely. I hope to contribute my best.”

“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.

“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 I believe in the voice of the future generation of women who will carry the world. The world is missing what WE women are prepared to offer: our compassion, wisdom and hunger for peace. I believe in the “hand of love that rocks the cradle” (W.R. Wallace). Female Wave of Change represent the voice of pioneers’ women who are ready to rise and push the limits of the impossible. It is the voice of women who believe in their vision and a higher purpose. The voice of those who are ready to carve and take ownership of their future and open the way for the future generations.”

“I joined Female Wave of Change because I believe change comes from within. When a woman is inspired to be the best  she can be, the ripple effect to both herself and those around her is powerful. Female wave of Change is the vehicle that can be used to make this happen”
