Leadership Initiative

To make real progress for women and girls on all fronts, we must strengthen the pipeline of women leaders - from the classroom to the first job, the executive suite, the board room and the political arena. We aim to provide leadership training and opportunities to 60,000 women and girls, preparing them to lead in the workplace and the community.

Dallas Women's Foundation has adopted an agressive Leadership Initiative to advance and increase the number of women in leadership positions at all levels of society - presenting leadership forums; featuring and publishing the voices of women leaders, particularly those in traditionally male-dominated sectors or roles; engaging in advocacy around women's leadership; and creating and funding new opportunities for women and girls to learn and lead.

During the year ended June 30, 2017, Dallas Women's Foundation's leadership grants and programs impacted nearly 4,000 women and girls.

The following leadership programs and initiatives are ways in which we are continuing to strengthen the advancement of women and girls.
