Our Mission

Tomorrow’s Women TODAY provides an unparalleled network for women who have been identified within their profession as future leaders. TWT establishes repeated opportunities to share ideas, learn from top-tier industry leaders, and further enrich the future business in the Greater Boston Community.

How We Started

Powered by women. Empowered by women.

After an event held by the Massachusetts Women’s Forum, Founder Lauren Pimpare recognized the need to create a supportive network for emerging female leaders in Boston’s public and private sectors. She found four other women who shared her vision, and together they formed Tomorrow’s Women TODAY.

The premise of the network was simple: to meet the professional needs of women who wanted a deeper connection with other like-minded leaders across their community. By strengthening these ties, women could better assist each other in growing their knowledge base, finding resources, and building their leadership skills in current and future positions. TWT achieves this aim through supportive networking, access to prominent leaders, and by hosting events in partnership with corporations and senior business executives throughout Boston.

Lauren ensures the success of this program, fostering a supportive environment for these young women to learn and grow.
The Pay It Forward Pipeline program, tailored for Emerging Leaders and Rising Executives, is a dynamic initiative comprising three action-oriented leadership development workshops, a six-month one-on-one mentoring session with an influential female leader, and networking sessions within a cross-sector peer network. Lauren’s leadership ensures the seamless execution of this program, providing female leaders with valuable experiences and connections that shape their professional journeys.

Since its inception in 2009, Tomorrow’s Women TODAY has transformed into a powerful network, positively impacting the lives of over 20,000 women.

This expansion has created new opportunities for connection and empowerment. Between both communities, the organization organizes over 40 events annually, fostering strong bonds that make the community vibrant and supportive.

Furthermore, Lauren demonstrated adept leadership by navigating the merger of the Boston Women’s Leadership Council and Tomorrow’s Women TODAY into one cohesive and dynamic community. This strategic consolidation ensures that Tomorrow’s Women TODAY continues to evolve and adapt to meet the diverse needs of its members. The organization proudly stands as the only network for women that evolves alongside its members throughout their professional journeys, encompassing the Early Leaders Tier, Emerging Leaders Tier, and Executive Leaders Tier.
