About this Chapter
Our mission is to MOVE WOMEN FORWARD in their professional and personal ambitions. We are a rich community of multi-generational, multi-cultural women committed to building and growing the chapter together, because, as Sheryl Sandberg says, together we're better. There are many seats at the table and everyone has a part to play in making this a connected, supportive community.

The Seattle Chapter is one of the largest, most active chapters in the world and was designated by LeanIn.org as one of their 30 Regional Leaders worldwide. We're a diverse group with 5,000+ members who have made a commitment to a community based on a set of powerful Core Values:

Show up
Energize
Add Value
Build Community
Leave a Legacy
Spread the Word

If you want to contribute and invest in yourself or the women around you, come check us out at leaninseattle.org and our Facebook page facebook.com/LeanInSeattleChapter.

We're excited to meet you!
