Leah Meers

Leadership Facilitator & Speaker and Former WE Day Head, WE

Reflecting on the most memorable impact of her work at WE, Leah stated,

I helped grow the WE Day team from four full-time staff to over 50, and helped scale WE Day from two events in one country to 14 events in three countries.

Reflecting on the role WE played in shaping his career, Leah said, Being able to work on so many different projects with so many different people and teams at WE helped me learn what my talents are and what energizes me—where I can create the most impact and feel I’m getting the most value out of my work.

the power of community and collaboration—I left with the mantra of “hire the best and most talented people and then get out of their way!”

On what Leah learned at WE,

Multitasking and prioritization, adaptability, knowing how to ask for help, over-communicating vision so that we’re all working toward the same goal, learning from my mistakes and the art of debriefing! Reflecting, learning, dreaming and then being able to move on to the next challenge is so important.
