The Omega Women's Leadership Center (OWLC) stands on the shoulders of courageous women from around the world who have challenged cultural norms and changed history. Today, the need for women to lead from their authentic voice, values, and vision has never been greater or more important.
Omega was founded on the holistic worldview that the well-being of each of us is deeply connected to the well-being of all living things. We believe that when women are valued, respected, and empowered, everybody benefits—girls and boys, women and men. When feminine and masculine principles are equally esteemed, everything changes. We believe that violence, greed, and injustice are not “just the way it is.” A more balanced blend of voices and perspectives will create a safer and wiser way of living together on our beautiful planet.
The OWLC is catalyzing a new way of envisioning women's leadership. We want to transform what it means to lead. We want to redefine power—from “power over” to “power with.” We celebrate women who are models of doing power differently; women who lead with love and creativity; women who are re-engineering our communities, societies, and world—for the sake of everybody.
