Our mission is to remove barriers to access the resources, support, and skills you need to advance as a leader. Our meeting fee is kept low so that all women can attend our monthly meeting and receive the benefits of joining our community.
If you have financial difficulty and can't afford the meeting fee, you can reach out to Carissa and discuss options to get your fee waived.
We want to help you access the all the resources you need to succeed! Each meeting will include a speaker who has true value to provide to our community.
We carefully select our speakers so that you will leave each meeting with a new skill, increased confidence, and valuable tools so you can grow as a leader.
One of your most valuable resources as an established or emerging leader is your community and your connections. You will find both here at WIL.
We aim to create a space that nurtures connection and networking as you establish valuable relationships and friendships with other women leaders. When you come to WIL you WILL feel the power of women lifting one another up.
