We are committed to fulfilling the vision of The Women’s Building: to build a strong San Francisco community of women that is diverse, supportive and progressive.

Our team approach to leadership reflects our values as an agency committed to empowering women, including its staff. Executive Director Malea Chavez, an attorney with more than 15 years of experience in homeless services, housing rights, family law, probate, and public policy advocacy, leads our efforts. An Operations Team, comprised of our Development, Program, and Facilities Directors, works with Malea on strategic planning and program development, external relations, and agency management. Board members are active in agency development and provide substantive guidance and support in finance and program development.
