How You Can Help In A Time of Need

Women Leading Kentucky is a non profit, non-membership organization who does not receive state or federal funding. We solely depend on our community for support. During this time of uncertainty we have discontinued all in-person events and quickly pivoted to online events. As we continue to provide online workshops, trainings, networking events and resources for our community we kindly ask for your help. When you make a donation you are helping to support our staff and allowing us to continue offering quality programming to our community. We are deeply moved by your compassion and kindness! We are proud to be a part of a community that demonstrates such support and empathy!

Women Leading Kentucky

Women Leading Kentucky is a non-profit, non-membership, organization that helps professional women find networks, mentors, business connections and educational opportunities. We are inclusive and provide professional growth by hosting various events that allow women to feel empowered and develop their leadership abilities. Each year we hold roundtable luncheons, conference, forums, workshops, special events and networking events that showcase small business owners. Approximately 10 scholarships are awarded annually to deserving women attending Kentucky colleges/universities. Over $190,000 has been awarded since 1999. Our demographic consists of leaders across many work sectors/industries who are decision makers with buying power and a high net-worth.

If you are new to the Lexington area, need to develop your leadership skills or simply want a strong network of supportive professionals then you have found a good home! If you want to get further involved, you can exhibit, sponsor, subscribe to our e-newsletter, nominate women for awards, join the online directory, invite friends to events, submit your testimonial, donate door prizes or make tax-deductible monetary donations to support the advancement of the organization. Your greatest contribution is to help spread the word about what this organization has done for you!
