Higher Heights Leadership Fund is an organization dedicated to creating a network to support and build up Black women’s leadership capacity. Their process involves investing in strategies to both increase the number of Black women in the leadership pipeline as well as foster more civic participation among Black women by providing training programs, civic engagement, and networking opportunities. The four main pillars of Higher Heights Leadership Fund’s approach are capacity building, grassroots organizing, research, and convenings.

The Barbara Lee Family Foundation is proud to support Higher Heights Leadership Fund in their efforts to amplify the voices and leadership of Black women because “democracy is stronger when women’s voices are heard.” The Foundation worked with Higher Heights Leadership Fund from 2013 to 2016.
