Founder & CEO Welcome

In the Spring of 2003, we had a vision for a women’s forum on leadership. In March 2004, we organized the first Women in Leadership Symposium (WIL) in San Antonio, Texas which was presented by the Texas Diversity Council. Our intent was to create a forum for female executives to share their personal stories about their challenges and their successes of climbing the corporate ladder all the way to the top. By sharing their knowledge, attendees would gain understanding and insight on professional strategies that lead to success.

Eight years later, our vision has expanded to become a National effort with Women in Leadership Symposiums being held in the majority of our 25 different state markets. The vision of the National WIL Symposium is to be a resource for women to network, mentor and grow professional. These events will bring together a diverse mix of successful women leaders who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues will educate, inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to move higher within their organizations.

We invite you to take part in one of the many great symposiums held across the country. You will find that our WIL’s are exceptional events. In addition, we encourage those interested in hosting a symposium in your community to contact me. Thank you very much for your support.

Sincerely,
