About Us

We believe women hold the power to create global change. We connect them.

We're an award-winning social network connecting women worldwide for change. By harnessing the power of technology, we help create a world—both virtual and physical—where women unite to share resources, launch movements, start businesses, run for office, or simply tell their story. A world where all women thrive.

Why?

Because when women are heard and connected, we have the power to transform the world.

We are World Pulse and this is our digital uprising.

Our Story: One Voice Became Many

When I was 19 years old I went to the Amazon forest as a journalist and worked with women struggling to feed their families as a result of oil contamination. They asked me to be their messenger – to tell their story to the world. And as I continued to travel - to the Burma border and across the United States - I heard this same plea from more and more women. That’s when I realized that we needed a global media source where women could be their own messengers.

Less than 10 years later, I founded World Pulse. It began simply as a print magazine. But as digital media gained momentum, we took World Pulse online. And while the mission remained the same, the impact multiplied. Today, tens of thousands of people around the world are united through our social platform and our members touch millions more as a result. As we develop new ways to engage our online community it will only continue to grow. We are speaking a new world, and the world will hear us roar.

World Pulse has a bold ambition – to use digital technology to unleash the untapped creative potential of women everywhere. Our global community reflects that dream and now that you’ve joined us, you are helping to making it a reality.

Together we are creating a new world and this is our story.

Love,
