Women of Initiative 2019 Honorees

The Event of the Season

Each year, the Women’s Foundation of Collier County, a field-of-interest fund at the Community Foundation of Collier County, honors ten local women leaders who, through their leadership styles, are an inspiration to all women seeking to make a difference through philanthropy and civic engagement.  

The 2019 Women of Initiative event will be held on April 5, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples.
