The Women’s Leadership Committee is a prominent group of women and a driving force in the efforts to bring notable improvements to the National Mall. They are collectively one of the Trust’s longest-serving core supporters. Since the committee's first benefit luncheon in a small tent on the National Mall, this exceptional group has actively advocated to restore the prestige and attention our National Mall deserves.

The Executive Committee of the Women’s Leadership Committee, recognized below, are members who take an active role in the leadership and strategic direction of the committee, its activities, and the group’s involvement with wider Trust for the National Mall events and initiatives.
