The World Academy for the Future of Women (WAFW) is a bold and daring leadership program focused on developing young women for leadership roles that will address and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  WAFW began in China in 2009 as a one-year program for 100 women.  The following year, upon request  by male students, a Men’s Academy for the Future of Women was created, replicating the women’s program and preparing men to support the advancement of women.  Today, the WAFW program is a multi-level three year advanced leadership program. WAFW is available in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in partnership with Ulab – University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh
