BOSTON - May 3, 2022 -

Shaping the future of workplace dynamics by advocating for women’s advancement, Leading Women, a division of Leading NOW, has entered into a strategic partnership with the nonprofit Foundation for Women’s Leadership & Empowerment (“FWLE”) to accelerate the leadership development experience at FWLE’s 2022 Annual Women’s Leadership Conference (“WLC”) on August 7-8, 2022 at MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.

Leading Women’s team of global experts will deliver a series of tailored workshops focused on FWLE’s leadership model & competencies based on participants’ skill level of leadership. The WLC aims to expand the pipeline of women, advancing all women leaders, and particularly those in underrepresented groups, by providing a high-quality developmental program that instructs them in core leadership competencies essential to career and economic advancement across society. Leading Women is proud to partner with the WLC as its exclusive workshop content-provider this year.

FWLE President & CEO Phyllis A. James remarked on the engagement of Leading Women for this year’s conference: “We strongly believe that gender equality in leadership begins with equality in access to leadership education. Our goal is to continually enhance WLC as a formative and transformative developmental experience as our multi-generational participants evolve. In our quest for a first-class workshop curriculum, we sought a partner with a compatible philosophy and curated content grounded in the real-world dynamics and needs of leadership today, particularly for women and women of color. Leading Women represents that solution for us.”

“This strategic partnership is a perfect alignment,” said Leading NOW CEO, Kelly Lockwood Primus. “It’s exciting for us to partner with a forward-thinking organization whose competency model perfectly aligns with what Leading Women has been delivering for almost 20 years––best-in-class leadership development programming for women wherever they are in their career journey. We look forward to bringing our world class content to this year’s conference.”

Since its founding in 2007, WLC has inspired and instructed thousands of entry-level, mid-level and executive-level women across industries in the skills and dynamics of leadership. The 2022 WLC represents the 15th edition of the conference – a milestone in its evolution. For more information, visit https://www.fwle.org/conference.
