These power players and change-makers, including How Women Lead founder Julie Castro Abrams, are reshaping politics and the boardroom.


How Women Lead provides a platform for women to connect, learn, find purpose and make an impact.


We work with experienced women in senior positions, giving them the training, connections and support to step up to the next level and increase opportunities for all women.


By training and connecting diverse women executives from the corporate, public, philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, we propel women to become catalysts for change far beyond their own fields.
