Working Business Women in Southwest Florida


Leading the Ladies of Southwest Florida is a non-profit organization created for working business women based on Leadership, Connection, and Empowerment.

Mission: Inspiring collaboration to strengthen our leaders.

Vision: Our vision is to help women and parents to become the best version of themselves. 

50 Strong!  

Leading the Ladies of Southwest Florida wants to reach an important milestone:  We are growing to have 50 members!  

Our focus and commitment is to build a $50,000 donation. This will be a scholarship that lasts in perpetuity, or never ends. After we build the education branch of our organization, we will then be moving onto our leading entrepreneurs. We will then be building funds to give away grants to women or parents that are opening or have recently opened their own businesses. This will help them in the education, sales, growth, financial and other areas important to focus on.


Expose women leaders within our community to new skills, leadership development, and access to training and various resources.


Build a stronger community for the future by connecting members to our community business and organization leaders, educational institutions, as well as our grant recipients in order to assist them with opportunities for future growth.


Inspire women to be confident in taking their business to the next level and to empower other women to do the same.
