> and leadership in all areas of our lives. Since our inception, we have run
> programs that train future women leaders and connect women in Washington
> State with each other and with women internationally.
> During our first 10 years, we have traveled all over the world on women’s
> trade and educational delegations, learning how women are leading and
> tackling the issues they face in each of their countries, locally and
> nationally. And, in our own backyard, we’ve found women making a difference -
> from bioethics to wine making - and we’ve given them a forum to share their
> stories through our monthly Food for Thought (FFT) dinner series. We’ve
> helped mentor hundreds of young women in the Pacific Northwest by introducing
> them to women leaders who make Washington work through our Women’s Leadership
> Training programs. And we honor those women leaders each year at the
> Governor’s Mansion – women legislators, appointed officials and women
> lobbyists – who give our state the reputation it has in women’s leadership.
> We're excited about our 2012 Leadership Institute and training a new cohort
> of women to "Lead Where They Land." Please help us get the word out by
> posting our flyer and sharing information with your students. If anyone has
> questions they are welcome to email me at: ifriday at mac.com
