The Womensphere GLOBAL VIDEOFEST is a global movement, virtual event and celebration to empower the next generation of women to use video to share creative solutions to humanity's greatest challenges and express women's vision on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
We invite the participation of all women currently enrolled in universities, colleges, and secondary schools around the world, across all majors, fields, and disciplines.
This is a global program of the Womensphere Innovation Leadership Lab (WILL) which pioneers, incubates, and scales STEAM*-powered and innovative approaches of empowering women and girls to create the future, and the Womensphere Incubator Network (WIN), a global initiative of the Womensphere Foundation to accelerate gender parity and inspire, train, and empower 1 million women and girls by 2020 (STEAM* = science, technology, engineering, arts & design, mathematics).
