Our Vision


LWT is dedicated to empowering women to grow their knowledge, leadership skills and network in order to map their own paths to career success and achieve greater personal and professional impact.


Our History

LWT has a long history of bringing women together to help each other advance in their careers. 

We started out in 2008 as Women in Licensing, a committee of the Licensing Executives Society. The group continued to grow and, in 2011, the group’s leadership decided to expand membership and programming to serve the broader technology industry. That’s when Women in Licensing Bay Area became Leading Women in Technology and was certified as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3).

Today, LWT is a top organization for women’s professional development with programs in San Francisco, Palo Alto, New York and Seattle. While LWT was founded as a vehicle to advance women with skills that benefit technology-oriented businesses, we now welcome and advance emerging and current leaders in all business sectors. 



LWT and the WILpower program could not be run without our volunteers, from the Board to our Ring Leaders and many others who do the work necessary to make it all happen. If you are interested in becoming part of our volunteer community, please Contact Us.
