The L³ Alliance

Whether they are entrepreneurs, C-level executives, or licensed professionals, self-made, high-net-worth women often feel alone, and sometimes even feel lonely, because of the success they’ve achieved professionally.  They frequently need assistance with establishing life balance in the face of their tremendously busy schedules so they can optimize their influence as spouses, parents, and participants in their communities. With emotional support and accountability grounded in mutual understanding and experience, they can give more to the world professionally and philanthropically.

Through membership in the L³ Alliance, these spirited, generous, and deeply compassionate women find this support.  At the same time, they champion the philanthropic activities spearheaded by the Wells International Foundation.
