Tocqueville Women's Leadership
In 1999 40 women joined together creating the first ever society, Tocqueville Women's Leadership to honor women who are successful in business, community, and home. The first of its kind, this subset of the Tocqueville Society received national acclaim and was celebrated by the Wall Street Journal. Focusing specifically on children's education Tocqueville Women's Leadership launched the Thriving at Three initiatives in 2005, and expanded the initiative in 2008. These unique and generous women have given both their time, money, and hearts to the causes of the greater Greensboro community.
