One of the NFRW’s primary objectives is to empower women in the political process by providing a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government and civic arenas.
To achieve this objective, the NFRW promotes a robust Leadership Development program which offers resources, materials, workshops and other training and mentoring opportunities to state and club leaders, as well as to the general membership.
