TeamWomen Welcomes New Board Members


TeamWomen is excited to announce 5 new members to our Board of Directors and 2 new members to our Young Professionals Advisory Board. Our Board is influential in implementing our mission work that helps women and girls rise together through our three pillars:  Leadership Development events, our Mentor Program, and Empower Leadership Academy.

As the premier professional women’s organization, we are deeply committed to developing future generations of women in leadership. Each of these women is a staunch supporter of TeamWomen and has given us countless hours of service and support through their philanthropic nature. Please help us welcome this exceptional group of women to TeamWomen!
