Muslim women's leadership for a stronger India

Led By Foundation

An engine of growth through empowerment for India

The world's largest democracy has 100 million Muslim women. We are building an ecosystem for this community to achieve its potential.


With collaborative support and effective mentorship, Indian Muslim women can have a positive and magnifying effect on the country's cohesiveness, while also supporting India's economic growth.

Led By Foundation empowers Muslim women enrolled in college or graduate schools through a rigorous yet supportive non-residential leadership training program 

A unique leadership program for young Indian Muslim women that focuses on experiential learning,

collaborative networking, and financial support

What does the Foundation provide?

Against the backdrop of low female labor force participation, Led By Foundation (LBF) seeks to catalyze the potential of Indian Muslim women in transforming themselves, their communities, and their country through leadership and economic participation.

If you are an Indian Muslim woman in college with high ambitions and an appetite for professional excellence, our training will help you thrive. It includes:

  • access to eminent speakers

  • expert mentorship from your industry

  • workshops to master crucial soft skills

  • a powerful and growing network

We all stand on the shoulders of giants.

LBF brings those giants to you.
