Women's Leadership Council

What is the Women's Leadership Council?


The Women’s Leadership Council is a group of women truly generous in heart and spirit who bring vision, energy, talent, and creativity to improve lives in our community and create lasting change.

Representing all backgrounds including professionals, community volunteers, philanthropists, and business leaders, these women energize the entire community to impact education, basic needs, and health in Northwest Georgia.

Our Women’s Leadership Council is more than philanthropy.

It’s about giving women the training, resources, and information needed to be effective community volunteers and leaders.
