Our Mission

FWL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving emerging women leaders of all ages. Our mission is to help women in the Bay Area reach their leadership potential by providing opportunities in leadership training and development, personal and professional growth, and network building.

In 2001 Leslie Simmons founded Future Women Leaders along with Kristin Torres and several other Stanford University recent graduates to promote the growth and development of women professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. The organization has grown to a network of 1,000+ women in the Bay Area and beyond.

We want the legacy and growth of FWL to be driven by each of you. Help us create an organization that serves you and your leadership by giving voice to what you need personally and professionally by attending events, volunteering, and partnering.
