In 2016 our Leadership team was given the opportunity to join The White House Chief of Staff in Washington DC. As the Administration came to an end, it was the final forum of its kind hosted by President Obama’s White House Council on Women and Girls.


Our leadership team is bold and imaginative, we focus on building the movement and efforts that will equip us in the moment of both crisis and opportunity. We believe in engaging in strategies that are adaptive and aim for transformation rather than solely incremental change. The leadership believes in leading with a growth mindset and understands that for the organization to be impactful at serving, we as leaders must know first-hand how to break down gender equity barriers and empower ourselves as advocates on critical issues ranging from health, violence against women, economic security, entrepreneurship, human rights, and education.


Therefore, to keep our bosses on the leadership track for the long haul, Women of Toledo’s team knows that it must stop sprinting through life and start training for it as a marathon. Our leaders are trained at state, national and international levels to better equip ourselves at bringing our community in Greater Toledo together to discuss the challenges that women and youth face in their daily life. 

The Board of Executive, Directors and all Leadership Team meet every 2nd Monday of the month at 5pm to 7:30pm. The meeting starts at 5:35pm. We meet at the Women of Toledo Meeting Room 301 at 425 Jefferson, 3rd Floor, Downtown Toledo.
