Vital Voices Global Partnership grew out of the U.S. government's successful Vital Voices Democracy Initiative. The Vital Voices Democracy Initiative was established in 1997 by then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright after the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing to promote the advancement of women as a U.S. foreign policy goal.
Vital Voices Global Partnership became a non-profit, non-governmental organization in June 2010. Vital Voices is now continuing the work of advancing women's economic, political and social status around the world by providing them with skills training, networking and support.
Vital Voices identifies, invests in and brings visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential which then allows them to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity around the world.
