Mission Statement

The mission of The Dallas Summit is to serve as an influential force in Dallas so that women are full participants in decision-making processes to create a whole, just, and abundant community.

The Dallas Summit is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


The Dallas Summit is a positive influence in our community, through the individual and collective actions, connections and experiences of its members. Established in 1989 by eight visionaries seeking a greater civic voice and impact for women, The Dallas Summit has grown to include 125 active and associate members who are working professionals, accomplished volunteers and experienced civic leaders.

A professionally, ethnically and politically diverse group, Dallas Summit members traverse the public and private sectors in the areas of business and entrepreneurship, medicine and healthcare, banking and finance, the law, education, arts and culture, politics and public policy, women’s and children’s issues, social justice, philanthropy, volunteerism and civic needs.
