This year, The Foundation of the Women Presidents’ Organization (FWPO) introduced a unique educational program called “Leading High Growth Businesses.” We partnered with Lynda Applegate, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and other Harvard professors, for a four-day program generously sponsored by Prudential.
It focused primarily on WPO members with annual business revenues of $3 – $10 million, who did not yet qualify for WPO Platinum membership or the Harvard Owner President Management program, to grow their businesses. Topics, included: innovation, leading through growth, and aligning strategy and sales. All 58 participants who were unanimously enthusiastic in assessing the positive impact of this amazing program.
This holiday season, FWPO is participating in #GIVINGTUESDAY, a global day of giving, fueled by the power of social media. It kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday, November 28th. We hope it will build awareness about FWPO and its programming, and encourage year-end contributions by sharing some of the passionate testimonials we received from participants at the “Leading High Growth Businesses” program.
You can become an active “social media” participant by:

The Foundation was formed to support, benefit and assist the WPO’s mission to accelerate business growth, enhance competitiveness, and promote economic security for women entrepreneurs and women-led businesses.
