President's Message

Trudy Crowetz: President 2020-2021

On behalf of Executive Women of the Palm Beaches Foundation, I am honored and privileged to serve as President of the premier women executive organization established in our community in 1983.

We are an organization that is dedicated to educating and supporting women leaders of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, and industries. We are committed to excellence and celebrating women by welcoming and enabling an inclusive culture for all women in Palm Beach County. Executive Women of the Palm Beaches Foundation belongs to all of us.  As we prepare to face the challenges of this era of uncertainty, we are well-qualified to position ourselves for the future.

Members from our organization continue to engage a new generation of women leaders.  We are connecting with each other online (and eventually in person) to continue our commitment to advancement of women in all sectors. Our mission is to empower women to lead and succeed, which is in alignment with our vision that inspires integrity, equality, and leadership.

Our programs are for members to collaborate, connect, and celebrate each other. Our WILA (Women in Leadership Awards) event draws women executives from around the county to celebrate the honorees and nominees, while being inspired by an outstanding speaker. Our uniqueness allows us to attract the highest-ranking female executives in Palm Beach County.

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Executive Women of the Palm Beaches Foundation. If you are new or considering becoming a member, please attend an online event or contact us so that we can arrange a sponsor to connect with you to outline the membership criteria.

Sincerely,

Trudy Crowetz
President – 2020-2021
