Our Culture :

WF is a global not-for-profit, and works like a start-up, in a fast-moving, dynamic pace where change is the only constant and flexibility is the key to success.

Three mantras that we practice across job roles, levels, functions, programs and initiatives, are Quality, Speed, Scale, in that order.

We are an ambitious and inclusive organization, where everyone is encouraged to contribute and ideate. We are intensely and insanely focused on driving excellence in everything we do.

We want individuals with the drive for excellence, and passion to do whatever it takes to deliver world class outcomes to our beneficiaries.

We set our own standards often more rigorous than what our beneficiaries demand, and we want individuals who love it this way.

We have a creative and highly energetic environment one in which we look to each other to innovate new solutions not only for our beneficiaries but for ourselves too.

Open to collaborate with a borderless mentality, often going beyond the hierarchy and siloed definitions of functional KRAs, are the individuals who will thrive in our environment.

This is a workplace where expertise is shared with colleagues around the globe. Individuals uncomfortable with change, constant innovation, and short learning cycles and those looking for stability and orderly working days may not find WF to be the right place for them.

Finally, we want individuals who want to do greater good for the society leveraging their area of expertise, skills and experience.

The foundation is an equal opportunity firm with no bias towards gender, race, colour, ethnicity, country, language, age and any other dimension that comes in the way of progress.
