Community Building

We are continuously looking to uplift and empower communities, and we are committed to growing strong relationships within and beyond the realm of WSEs. 

DIWA (Deepening Impact of Women Activators) is a three-month online capacity-building program that takes Women Social Entrepreneurs (WSEs) on a learning journey that empowers them to create stronger impact, all while establishing a community of determined WSEs in ASEAN.

We host virtual summits to bring together some of the most prominent women leaders of the region with corporates, entrepreneurs, Changemakers, and more to foster a world that is more welcoming and celebratory of gender-trransformative leadership. 

Insights and Stories

We think it is important to humanize our findings, so we like to highlight stories of WSEs! We also hold roundtable discussions to learn from experts and those on the ground. 

Our Stories of Impact series consists of videos and articles that showcase the challenges Southeast Asian Women Social Entrepreneurs (WSEs) face and their corresponding solutions that change broken systems for the good of all.

DIWA has built bridges of collaboration between different women social entrepreneurs which have impacted over a thousand Southeast Asians, most of whom belong to marginalized groups. 

DIWA Testimonials

Take a look at what DIWA has done for the Southeast Asian women social entrepreneurs who have graduated from the program! 

DIWA equipped me with a better understanding of how to drive scalable and sustainable change through an organization built on a firm foundation of purpose, care, and courage. This program reminds me that there is an ocean of support waiting for people who are willing to put themselves out there.

Now, more than ever, reputable organizations like Ashoka, Deutsche Bank, and S&P Global Foundation have raised the bar in gender lens investing. The continuous support in enabling women to progress to leadership positions has put a shared responsibility for mainstreaming women's advancement.

 Before joining DIWA, I was a bit scared as I am still young and haven't done much in my field. But after all the workshops, I felt more confident and I now believe that one day I can be like all the other successful female leaders, as long as I keep on working hard and believing in myself.
