To assist them in this process, WIPP appoints an advisory council of female leaders to provide guidance on policy and programming, working to promote the organization to the women entrepreneurship community and developing leadership training and member engagement activities.

Speaking about the women selected for this year’s Leadership Advisory Council, Chair of WIPP’s Leadership Advisory Committee, Courtney Fairchild, stated, “This group of impressive women leaders will play a crucial role in the future of WIPP. Their efforts will be focused on how to engage WIPP’s existing network in our program and policy activities as well as how to grow our membership across the country.”
