WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE NEXT GENERATION (WING)
The caring women who join the Women’s Leadership Initiative enjoy being part of the solution to problems facing young women and children in our region. They also enjoy opportunities to network with women leaders and develop their own leadership skills.
Through our WING (Women’s Leadership Initiative Next Generation) network, emerging women leaders, age 35 and under, are able to to nurture their philanthropic interests and build their networks with mentoring support from other WLI members.
WING members are also involved in special partnerships with nonprofit organizations serving at-risk women and girls.
