Women In Leadership Awards

Co-Chair Sponsorship - Pattie Light

The Women In Leadership Awards Luncheon (WILA) is held annually in the spring.  It was the first award program in Palm Beach County to recognize the leadership accomplishments of women in our community. At the luncheon, Executive Women of the Palm Beaches, Inc. presents its Annual Women In Leadership Awards to exemplary women who have demonstrated extraordinary achievements and leadership in the nonprofit, private, public and volunteer sectors. Since 2010, each recipient is presented with the Free to Be statue, by artist and member JoAnne B. Berkow.  The Luncheon is one of the county’s most successful community events, attracting approximately 600 attendees annually.

While the luncheon recognizes the achievements and celebrates the contributions of exceptional executive women, proceeds of the Luncheon provide critically needed scholarship assistance. The Women in Leadership Awards program has raised significant dollars to help promising young women in our community pursue their dream of a college education.

This year's keynote speaker is Susan Packard, Co-Founder of Scripps Networks Interactive & Former Chief Operating Officer, HGTV. Please click here to learn more about her.
