About California Women Lead


Imagine a California with trained, dynamic, ethical women leaders running for local and state offices with a far-reaching effect on local and state issues that affect all Californians. Imagine a California where appointed boards and commissions at the local and state levels are reflective of California’s rich diversity.

This is the mission of California Women Lead.

As California’s largest nonpartisan association of women leaders, California Women Lead provides a positive environment for women involved in public policy to discuss issues and develop relationships across party lines. California Women Lead values the power of community and the difference women can make when supported. It's also about the continued fight for gender parity at our local and state offices, as well as our decision-making boards and commissions, so that all Californians know they are truly represented. 

The members of California Women Lead represent a wide variety of ages, professional backgrounds and geographical areas. California Women Lead continues to make a difference for women across the state and provide them with the inspiration to be the leaders we know they have the potential to become.

California Women Lead continues to make a difference for women across the state by providing them with the support to be the leaders we know they have the potential to become. Through California Women Lead’s programs and campaign leadership trainings, more women than ever have applied for and obtained appointments at the state and local level, and have made their move to run for elected office and WIN. Women who never thought they could serve in elected and appointed positions are now leaders in their communities, attributing their success to the California Women Lead network.
