It's time to InvestWISE by training more women for leadership positions and rebalancing the gender scales in the workplace.

INVESTWISE IS AN INITIATIVE OF THE IDEX GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM THAT ACTIVELY TRAINS AND EMPOWERS WOMEN TO LEAD SOCIALLY-IMPACTFUL CAREERS IN SPECIALIZED FIELDS WHERE WOMEN ARE UNDER-REPRESENTED.

We believe that leadership training should begin much earlier in a woman's career and that women should be encouraged to have careers that feed their passions and can help build their communities and society at large. To actualize this belief, IDEX founded the InvestWISE Scholarship Fund in 2014 and made it a core part of our mission to help balance the gender scales to place more women in leadership roles within specialized impact fields such as Agriculture, Clean Energy, Impact Investing, Technology for Development and Public Policy. 

Through InvestWISE we focus on identifying young women who have the passion and potential to lead socially impactful careers but who otherwise would be unable to join the fellowship program due to financial constraints. The scholarship covers their entire program tuition and basic living expenses during the six-month fellowship in India.
