Disabled People's International (DPI) Global Women Network has a two pronged approach

'Established Leaders' (DPI Women of Substance) for disabled women leaders 30 years of age and above and the 'Emerging Young Leaders' for young disabled women below the age of 30. The aim of this Network is to motivate more and more women with disabilities to take an active part in the working of DPI, network with our allies and also to groom younger disabled women to take leadership roles.
