Women, Leadership & Philanthropy

Our mission is to develop women as philanthropic leaders benefiting the University and the community at large. We invite you to join us in developing women leaders whose vision, energy and contribution will make a significant impact within organizations, families and society as a whole.



Guiding Principles

  • We leverage our combined experience to advocate for balanced representation of women in leadership and philanthropic roles in organizations and society.
  • We educate women to become better leaders and philanthropists to effect positive change.
  • We model and teach philanthropic, collaborative and inclusive leadership to engage our community of women.
  • We coach and mentor upcoming generations of women to become educated, philanthropic leaders others will follow.
