Women Presidents’ Organization, Inc. (“WPO”) is a non-profit 501(c) (6) organization formed to improve business conditions for women entrepreneurs, and to promote the acceptance and advancement of women entrepreneurs in all industries.
The WPO is the premier membership organization for women presidents & CEOs (and managing directors) of privately held, multi-million dollar companies. Through global, confidential and collaborative peer-learning groups, the WPO accelerates business growth, enhances competitiveness, and promotes economic security. It is the ultimate destination for successful women entrepreneurs.
In chapters composed of approximately 20 accomplished women entrepreneurs, women presidents, from diverse industries and backgrounds, address business concerns in a roundtable format and function as an informal board of directors for their businesses. There are currently 101 chapters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Peru and South Africa.
Chapters are moderated by professionally-trained facilitators, all of whom own their own businesses. Each chapter serves as a peer advisory group based on the 4 C’s of WPO: Collaboration, Confidentiality, Commitment and Connections. WPO members address both strategic and operational issues focusing on financial concerns, organizational development, hiring and firing and other issues defined by chapter members, to drive their businesses to the next level.
