  • About the Women's Leadership Alliance

  • WLALogo2014.jpg
  • The Women’s Leadership Alliance is an affiliate of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. Our mission is to empower women through advocacy, collaboration and leadership. Our networking opportunities—attended predominately by women—offer a collegial, friendly environment for developing meaningful business relationships. We also offer educational events to grow and learn both personally and professionally. The WLA collaborates with women’s organizations throughout the region to post events and information of concern to women on our website. All WLA members serve on a volunteer basis. Chamber members are welcome to join one of our committees.

    The wlahv.org website is our principle means of communicating with members and nonmembers. Our goal for the website is to be a central place to get information about women and women’s events in the Hudson Valley. The News section allows us to post news about issues affecting women locally, nationally and internationally; share inspirational or educational TED talks, books and webinars; and announce upcoming events hosted by the WLA and other women’s organizations. We also post news about area events and activities that advocate for women or women’s issues or offer educational or networking opportunities for women.

    Vision

    Our vision is to be the definitive leader in autism service dog provision – transforming the lives of individuals, families and communities.

    “Many times we were forced to take turns staying home or just not go out with our son because the stress of going out in public was so great. He got away from us more than once and the agony of getting to him before something tragic happened to him was more than we could bear. Receiving our autism service dog changed our lives; we have been able to participate in many activities that in the past would not have been possible.”
