WEL is a not-for-profit organization whose primary purpose is to promote gender diversity on corporate boards and in the executive suite through advocating, educating and connecting accomplished leaders.
Women Executive Leadership, Inc. (WEL) advocates, educates and connects accomplished women. WEL’s membership is reflective of executive women across diverse businesses in Florida and its reach is countrywide through its alignment with the 20/20 Women on Boards campaign.
- WEL Advocates – through WEL’s Census studies, its Corporate Salute Event and 20/20 Women on Boards National Conversation initiatives.
- WEL Educates – through programs, workshops and events focused on C-Level executives, executives of top two tiers of management, and directors of corporate boards, addressing the challenges and issues they face as well as the board selection process.
- WEL Connects – through the provision of a forum for executive women to unite, network and leverage best practices.
With the increased demands facing the traditional pool of board candidates and the higher expectations of board members, companies are expanding their search parameters to include more diverse board talent. WEL can influence the search process by serving as a catalyst to raise awareness of the need to include qualified women into the consideration set for these decision makers when making board decisions.
