WISE Los Angeles
Founded in 2005, WISE Los Angeles carries out the WISE mission by facilitating meaningful connections among local industry professionals and offering programming, events and valuable networking opportunities in the area throughout the year. In addition to our 12+ events a year, we also work with WISE National to deliver organization wide initiatives such as the WISE Within mentor program.
In 2019, WISE Los Angeles launched a pilot program in Orange County. Women in Orange County were looking to be involved in WISE but finding the Los Angeles programs difficult to attend simply due to geography. All WISE OC Extension members, are active members of the Los Angeles Chapter. Orange County programs, announcements, and news live within the WISE Los Angeles website and communications.
