The vision of the founders was to provide opportunities for women leaders in a variety of professions throughout the state to network with peers and counterparts and meet and collaborate with other active female professionals on business, social, cultural and personal issues. Its primary goal is building leadership skills and fostering opportunities to lead and for friendship among members and for future generations of women in the state. Members represent an exciting and wide range of professional  pursuits — directing Fortune 500 companies, composing symphonies, conducting medical research, founding new businesses, managing ranches, leading cities, hosting radio shows, running TV stations and more. Members serve on the highest  judicial courts, preside over universities, promote peace, direct  non-profits, author books and record or make history. The IWF has 64 chapters in 23 nations, on five continents.
