Mission

The Multicultural Women Executive Leadership Foundation is a non-profit organization
that offers leadership and entrepreneurship training and development for multicultural
women and young girls. Its focus is on strengthening the US economic landscape by
leveraging multicultural women’s “cultural capital” through customized gender and
cultural education, access to business capital, mentorship and a support network. It
accomplishes this by empowering multicultural women to develop leadership and
entrepreneurial intelligence, create jobs and develop leaders, thus spawning a new
generation of successfully sustainable multicultural high-level leaders and companies.

What Makes Our Programs Unique?

Diversity leads to stronger business results, yet change is slow and multicultural women remain underrepresented in leadership positions and entrepreneurial ventures. These programs are focused and curated for the professional and personal development of all women leaders, including Executive Women,  Entrepreneur Women and Millenial Leaders. From embracing the principles used in Harvard University’s groundbreaking Authentic Leadership program, to learning curriculum based on cutting edge research taught by USC Faculty Scholars, these are one of a kind programs addressing multiple facets of leadership development.  Men are encouraged to apply.  “Together we Rise”
