Who We Are


La Tonya Brown

Founder & Executive Director

As the founder and Executive Director of Leading Ladies Inc., I am incredibly proud of the impact we have had on the lives of the young ladies we serve.  

I am proud of our organization's ability to adapt and innovate in response to the changing needs of our girls. Whether it's launching new programs, forming strategic partnerships, or leveraging technology to reach more individuals, we are continuously striving to improve and expand our impact. Together, we are making a difference and shaping a brighter future for the next generation. 

I believe that every girl deserves a supportive environment where she can grow, learn, and flourish. I am committed to creating a safe space, where girls feel valued, accepted, and empowered to be their authentic selves. Through our programs and initiatives, I strive to foster a sense of belonging and community, where girls can build meaningful connections, explore their passions, and discover their strengths.

 I am dedicated to providing opportunities for growth and advancement, equipping girls with the skills, resources, and support they need to succeed in all aspects of life. Whether it's through educational programs, career development initiatives, or personal empowerment workshops, I am committed to opening doors and expanding horizons for our participants.
