As a city of inclusivity, it’s no wonder that Seattle is home to such a strong network of female leaders.

Seattle has the highest share of women-owned businesses in the country and it’s also a place where women hold prominent leadership roles throughout the community. In order to celebrate these strong female leaders, we created an initiative called SEAforSHE to support the women in our community and showcase Seattle as a place that welcomes women with open arms.

Women rule, literally

With almost 30,000 women business owners, Seattle is ranked the second best city for women entrepreneurs. Women in Seattle have multiple seats at the table, are breaking through the glass ceiling, and are leading our city. Female city council members occupy more positions than their male counterparts, 2 to 1, and Seattle just swore in a woman (and proud lesbian) mayor, Jenny Durkan.

Making A Mark

At PCMA Convening Leaders 2019, Visit Seattle hosted an activation at the Ascent Studio featuring our SEAforSHE campaign celebrating the strong female leaders of Seattle. Visit Seattle is a founding partner of the PCMA Ascent program which promotes diversity and inclusion across the business events industry.
