Note from Our Founder

The amount of untapped human potential in our world is enormous, yet in so many places, challenges like race, gender, and sexuality are used to discriminate against men and women and prevent them from reaching their full potential.  The Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative was founded as part of an effort to challenge the way these differences are seen, and encourage companies, corporations and individuals to embrace those with diverse personalities and lifestyles for the positive and unique contributions they bring to the workforce. Our three pillars – Lift, Learn, and Lead – are dedicated to inspiring future leaders, where we hope to motivate people and those in positions of power to promote diverse identities and challenge the status quo. With your help, we can reach the next generation, and together we will build a more inclusive, respectful society.
