Areas of Leadership


In all spaces; work, home, and social, it is time to highlight and expand the significance and vitality of women. When women are empowered, communities are as well. 


The work of an advocate is never done. While we constantly strive for equality, our presence as advocates shows that we will work for what we believe in. 


We aim to raise the standard of equity for women in all realms. Recognizing that our ability to progress is bound by the resources we have access to, we strive increase accessibility and equity.


Our commitment to empowered women in business is more than rhetoric. The mentorship provided through membership is an investment in ourselves and future leaders. 


Building businesses and business minded women is an intentional effect of our organization and a key function of empowerment. This helps us impact awareness, policy change, and business and professional women.

Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that has.
