Female Leadership Impact Accelerator Ghana 2017




Our story began ten years ago when we, Victoria Foster and Patricia Becker—in different countries, industries, and stages of our careers—each found ourselves at a crossroads.

By many typical measurements, we were successful. Patricia worked throughout Europe’s corporate world for 20+ years, with prominent companies including Coca-Cola, Transavia Airline, and ING Bank, while Victoria climbed the ranks in investment banking with Credit Suisse working in New York and Australia for over a decade. But we both felt a calling to use our experience, expertise, and wisdom towards something bigger.

Listening to our female peers around the world we heard an incredible need for trusted advisors who were able to support these women in uncovering their full potential, designing a new future, and making a more meaningful contributions to the world.

Our journeys converged when we met each other in 2013 and immediately connected over our shared vision to commit our lives to paying forward what we missed in our professional lives and elevate those ready to go for their dream. A FutureWomenX partnership was formed on the seeds of this clear shared vision. Since, FutureWomenX has grown from just a few programs to a global platform with hundreds of women around the world joining us in our mission.

What drives all of us is finding the means to contribute to a more equitable and inclusive future. We aim not just to inspire but to incite real action and change. Collecting thousand of stories of female business leaders and entrepreneurs in the last 10 years (and counting), we have witnessed time and time again the tremendous potential women each have within themselves to be true leaders. And what the impact is when we bring them together and create the COLLECTIVE WISDOM that opens unforseen perspectives on the most relevant issues to them. We know that this incredible untapped source of clarity and power is key to a better collective future. We have an unwavering commitment to unleash this potential and support and empower courageous women throughout the world to be future-makers.

Our methodologies are based on years of experience and research in working with, coaching, and guiding women around the globe. We believe in the power of life-changing personal experiences grounded in radical awareness, trust and connection, courage, collective wisdom, action, purpose, and most importantly, fun. When women come together as peers, everything is possible.

We continue to evolve, innovate, and grow alongside our tribe. This is the essence of FWX that we dedicate of our work and lives to.
