We've partnered with thought leaders + trailblazers to round out a judging panel and board to guide decision making and provide mentorship across the spectrum.


Judging Panel

A rotating panel of women business leaders review and select Red Letter Grant winners on a bi-annual basis. The panel consists of one grant recipient, one carry-over judge and three new judges each year.
