About Us

“The challenges of the 21st century demand extraordinary leaders. Despite gains in leadership diversity, women remain perhaps the world's most under-utilized resource.

The time is right for new and innovative initiatives that foster professional development opportunities for women. A larger pool of well-trained and supported women leaders is essential to the global economy.”

                                  - Hiroko Tatebe, Founder and Executive Director
