About ALL Ladies League (ALL) and Women Economic Forum (WEF)
ALL Ladies League (ALL) is a multinational movement of “Sisters Beyond Borders,” fostering a worldwide web of women beyond borders, boundaries and bias.
A non-profit with a philanthropic vision and collaborative spirit, our core values of mutual respect, community spirit and positive attitude drive our circles of trust and togetherness worldwide. We have 1000+ chapters or circles of sisterhood globally that are spontaneous structures of self-help through support and sisterhood of women.
Membership to ALL is free albeit by reference and invitation only. We are non-religious, non-political and non-dogmatic.
With connections to 250,000 women and supporters worldwide, ALL & WEF offer the largest and widest outreach, enabling women’s networking and connections, and empowering women’s entrepreneurship and leadership in all walks of life.
The forum arm of ALL, the Women Economic Forum (WEF), curates conversations, connections, community and collaborations, in a celebratory spirit that elevates receptivity, curiosity, openness, inspiration and innovation.
WEF conducts editions across the world, offering a compelling platform for ALL to rise and shine, while being inspired by some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, authors, thought leaders and celebrities.
By encouraging peer exchange and community spirit; enabling networking and collaborations; and enhancing personal influence and visibility, WEF empowers enlightened exchange and partnerships for our greater “Business Beyond Borders.”
ALL & WEF are founded and headquartered in India, the cradle of civilisation that has forever welcomed and embraced ALL, with a most inclusive vision for humanity and the world as “One Divine Family,” as said in the Vedic phrase “Vasudeva Kutumbkam.” Our guiding spiritual mantra is “Love ALL, Serve ALL.”
We have a strong #SheforShe spirit, with related outreach toward #SheforHe and #SheforAll. We welcome #HeforShe champions to join us. Ours is a movement of Gender Equality without Gender Divisiveness.

Youth Outreach & Token Testimonials
We have an active outreach to youth in communities, schools, colleges and universities as our young women and men are indispensable partners in delivering the change we wish to see. Token Testimonials from university leaders are below:
“It was amazing to see delegates from more than 100 countries participate and share their journey. The stories about their struggles and how they overcame barriers and stereotypes, prior to being successful, touched each one of us. …. The forum afforded an amazing opportunity for the NMSU delegation, students, staff, and faculty to interact with global leaders. This experience is invaluable in developing further as global leaders.” – Rolando A. Flores, Dean College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, New Mexico State University, USA
“A truly outstanding and eye opening event! I felt honored to speak at the WEF with so many of the most accomplished and amazing women in the world in attendance and as speakers.” – Richard D’Aveni, Bakala Professor of Strategy, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, USA.
WEF – 5WCW Mission Million 2022
We have also announced MISSION MILLION for 2022, aimed at connecting a million women entrepreneurs and supportive leaders worldwide as an empowering sisterhood and inspired community, toward opening up exponential opportunities for connections and collaborations toward Parity, Peace and Prosperity for All.
This would also be a community follow up on previous United Nations world conferences for women, held in Mexico in 1975, Copenhagen in 1980, Nairobi in 1985, and the 4WCW in Beijing in 1995 where 12000 women representative from across the world came together. 25+ years hence, since the UN has not yet moved toward a 5th World Conference for Women – which would serve as a modern milestone for the journey and growth of women empowerment in our times. We have thus envisioned the 5WCW as WEF – 5WCW Mission Million 2022 with the goal of having a million women worldwide gather for a 5th World Conference of Women (5WCW).
For WEF-5WCW Mission Million 2022, WEF events will be held in India and simultaneously ALL over the world along with members and partners in at least 1000+ cities showcasing women empowerment, solidarity and sustainable change through rallies, walks, seminars, conferences and creative interventions.
