Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of the University University of Southern California
I have been a member, and then director, of WLC for the past 10 years, and have thoroughly enjoyed all of the women, the relationships, and the events that make it the great organization that it is today.
Partner Katz Cassidy CPAS
From my very first meeting at the beginnings of WLC our speakers have continued to educate me, to let me hear stories of so many amazing accomplishments and achievements and to remind me of the generosity and kindness of women no matter how successful they may be.
Managing Director Duff & Phelps, LLC
The WLC holds a very special place in my heart, as it is with the women of the WLC I feel most understood as a senior executive, mother, friend and fellow traveler doing what I can to make the most of life’s journey.
Attorney Lerman Pointer & Spitz LLP
The personal integrity and genuine warmth and generosity of the women of WLC eclipse even their stellar professional accomplishments — such an honor to call these women my friends!

President The De Laurentiis Company
WLC for me gives the support of friends, along with a collective of smart, relevant and like-minded women.
Managing Director Newmark Grubb Knight Frank
WLC is more than a council, it is a community that cultivates motivation, support and inspiration, while fostering real friendships and having a lot of fun!
Jeri J. Harman
Managing Partner and CEO Avante Mezzanine Partners
WLC is one of my favorite organizations. It isn’t just a network — it is a support system of highly accomplished women who often face similar situations and decisions and readily offer insights as we traverse our career and life challenges.
Robbin Itkin, Esq.
Partner DLA Piper LLP
There is nothing more invigorating to me than being in a room with the accomplished, amazing women that are members of the WLC. Everyone is so impressive. They have become my mentors, mentees, and my friends. It is an honor and true pleasure to be part of this organization and to serve as a board member.

What differentiates the WLC for me from other similar organizations is our commitment to outreach. Our mission statement includes a call to make a positive contribution to the next generation of women leaders and our community. Our long-standing partnership with the Fulfillment Fund takes those words and translates them into action through our mentoring program supporting Fulfillment Fund alumna as they make their way through their professional careers.
Chief Marketing Officer Tillster
This group is truly my safe place — filled with amazing women who share many of the same challenges and issues, yet they come from diverse backgrounds and life stages. I do whatever I can to be at events or create an opportunity to get together even beyond WLC programs.
Board of Director The Friendship Bridge
As a charter member of the WLC, I've made many dear friends; however, what I love most about being a part of this amazing group of women is how they each inspire me to be a better person.
Managing Director U.S. Trust
WLC has been a unique opportunity for me to connect with like-minded and positioned career women. The luncheons have also provided me with insights into other industries and lives, unto which I could never have exposure to otherwise. It's provided me with lifelong relationships at a level not available to even a senior professional such as myself.
Vice President Consumer Products Global Strategy at Mattel
I absolutely love being part of the WLC! I am continually inspired by and in awe of our members, our speakers and our guests who support one another unconditionally.
When stories are shared about our life experiences, both personal and professional, I always feel like I am not alone. It is a truly authentic group of women who I always look forward to seeing!
SVP, BD and RE Guess?, Inc.
Fantastic and fun organization of which it is an honor to be a part. The speakers are first-rate and insightful and so are the members.
Senior Vice President Wells Fargo Capital Finance
WLC is an extraordinary group of highly successful, professional women, with whom I’m proud to have the opportunity to be a board member and engage in our unique gatherings. I love how women with varied backgrounds yet similar experiences have this forum to learn from each other, be open and candid, and just be ourselves in a social setting.

WLC is an unusual, curated collection of highly successful women coming together to create a stress-free zone in which to share stories and advice, and to grow from both our shared, and our divergent, personal backgrounds.
