The year was 1992 and a group of four women came together to discuss and ultimately launch an organization to highlight women in leadership.

In 2004 Executive Alliance, then Network 2000, contributed $75,000 to establish an endowed scholarship to assist outstanding, worthy young women with their graduate or professional studies. Since its inception, the Executive Alliance Emerging Women Leaders Scholarship has assisted an impressive roster of recipients who are selected based on financial need, academic excellence, and their demonstrated contributions to their community.
