Equal Voice.

Equal Representation.

Equal Recognition.

OUR MISSION

Twenty-five years ago I spoke at a conference of 500 or so business leaders and I asked the question out loud, ”Where are the women?” In 2015, 25 years later, I am still asking the same question. Where are the more than 50% of graduates out of law school, medical school, the economics and liberal arts? Why have these high achievers not assumed equality with men in leadership roles in our governments, our corporate boardrooms, our universities and other institutions?
