Vision: WELD is the national model for implementing strategies to advance women to higher levels of leadership and economic strength. We deploy significant financial and influential resources to accelerate educational programming and relevant missions.
Mission: WELD develops and advances women’s leadership to strengthen the economic prosperity of the communities it serves. We provide women with specific tools to enhance their individual economic status, and we build programs, events, and a community to support female leadership development and business growth.
As we use an image of Rosie the Riveter in our logo we pay tribute to the women who challenged the traditional perception of women’s capabilities in the workplace and in society. Just as Rosie the Riveter and her colleagues broke new ground, our goal is to further the issues of economic development for women in Central Ohio. During wartime the slogan was, “The More Women at Work, the Sooner We Win.” This slogan holds just as true today as it did during Rosie’s time.
Opportunities: WELD develops and advances women’s leadership to strengthen the economic prosperity of the communities it serves. We do this by building programs, events, and a community to support leadership development and business growth. WELD has several speaking opportunities available every year during our programs and events. This is a great opportunity to speak to women from Central Ohio who currently hold key positions within their companies as well as those women who are on the rise.
