Our Network

Our Network

Our extraordinary network is comprised of 1,700+ women leaders from diverse ethnic, regional and organizational backgrounds. Leadership California’s network is an influential force contributing to the collective power of women leaders impacting California for better outcomes and results.

Our Diversity

Leadership California is committed to ensuring the leaders in our programs truly represent California in all of the ways. In 2016, we commissioned a comprehensive study to ensure our programs meet our core values to advance diversity and inclusion. The CIT class of 2018 is the most overall diverse group to date and we fully expect that to continue.

Our Impact

Transforming. Inspiring. Empowering. Life Changing.

These are just some of the words our women leaders use to describe their experience with Leadership California. After CIT, alumnae seek increasingly significant roles in career and communities because they are emboldened to take a leap forward. Participants feel a transformation – they are empowered to do more, be more, and give more.

We motivate and inspire accomplished women to reach higher aspirations and to have the knowledge, confidence and connections to improve California’s future.

Our Reach

The 1,700+ Leadership California participants and alumnae work in:

  • corporations
  • small businesses
  • government entities
  • nonprofit organizations
  • higher education institutions
  • professional service firms
  • entrepreneurial ventures

And serve on:

  • nonprofit organization boards
  • government commissions and boards at the local, county and state level
  • corporate boards

More than 90% of CIT alumnae serve on non-profit boards and commissions in California and globally.
