What’s a Circle of Women?

The SC WIL Lean In Circles of Women network is organized into nine geographic regions across South Carolina.

Beaufort | Hilton HeadLakeland / GreenwoodPee Dee
Catawba / Rock HillLow Country / CharlestonUpstate

Each region is represented by a Circle Coordinator with administrative support from a Central Circle Manager. Circle Coordinators recruit Circle Leaders in their geographic areas to organize individual tight-knit Circles of 8-10 women who typically meet once a month at any time that works for the group. To increase racial and gender representation of women in leadership, we encourage informal and often overlooked women leaders in the community to flex and grow their leadership skills by serving as Circle Coordinators and individual Circle Leaders. 

In addition to our regional circles, we are beginning to facilitate professional Circles among women who work within the same fields. Help us get one started in your area of interest!


And in the future, on college campuses for young leaders. With this much energy, we better get started now!
