Executive Director Opportunity The Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County is hiring our first Executive Director. We are seeking a collaborative, innovative, and visionary Executive Director with an entrepreneurial spirit to lead the organization into the future. Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County The Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County (WFPBC) was founded in 2007 by a group of local leaders who share a commitment to investing in women and girls by fostering their leadership and positively affecting their economic, political, and social status. For the last seven years, this volunteer-run organization has organized a series of programs to empower women and girls. Our annual “Girls Leadership Institute” provides a hands-on experience for girls to develop their leadership skills and make a direct impact on social justice issues that are important to them. WFPBC also directs a series called “By Women, For Women” which is a forum for Palm Beach County women to network, volunteer and learn together.
