WORLD PULSE is a global media network devoted to bringing women a global voice.
We accelerate change by uniting women worldwide through our media channels which include a magazine, an interactive website, an online community, and grassroots events. In addition, we conduct an online women's citizen journalism and empowerment training program that equips grassroots women from forgotten regions to become voices for their communities and effect change.
World Pulse is shifting the paradigm of undervaluing women through its communication infrastructure and partnership network, which links over forty top women's empowerment organizations and over 40,000 women from 180 nations. Previously unheard women are now having their stories picked up from World Pulse by major media outlets such as the BBC, PBS, and the Huffington Post. They are appearing before the United Nations and the US State Department, and speaking out in major international forums such as TED. In addition, women leaders are finding job opportunities, starting new programs and businesses, launching women's cybercafés, and finding international speaking opportunities that are changing their lives and lifting their communities.
