Anna Beth Gorman

Executive Director

Women’s Foundation of Arkansas

After more than a decade in public service and nonprofit management roles, I found myself as the Executive Director of the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas. The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas is the only statewide foundation that focuses solely on women and girls. Our aim is simple: stronger women, stronger Arkansas. We are working to be the leading equity partner in women’s economic development in the state.
