The Executive Women’s Council was developed to create a network of female leaders equipped with the skills, insight and passion needed to work collaboratively and to positively enhance the business community of Southern Nevada. The purpose is to elevate women’s careers to the highest levels in the workforce and community through educational events, mentoring and relationship-building. This program provides useful tools to help women meet their career and life goals with a focus on community engagement.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of our Presenting Sponsor, the Howard Hughes Corporation, our exciting Executive Women’s Council continues to grow, and produce meaningful programs and connections.

Annual dues are $425 per council member; space is limited. Program sponsorships are also available. For application information and other details, contact Rosemary Evans, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Strategy, at 702.419.5723.
