As two of the nation’s premier leadership organizations for girls and women, Leadership Women partners with Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas to advance female leadership from Kindergarten to adulthood, through all ages and stages of a woman’s life and career.

Welcome to Leadership Women

Leadership Women is at the forefront, helping women and their organizations build intentional leaders. It is a simple truth: What helps advance a woman in her leadership journey is both good for business and good for society as a whole.  Our mission is to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic, and public life.

The determination that drove our founders over 36 years ago remains alive today, empowering women across the globe.  A Leadership Women Leader is someone who wants to LEARN, LEAD and leave a LEGACY.
