By cultivating a Legacy with intention, you create the possibility of a more peaceful world.
“Women who pursue a legacy for the greater good and with intention are more powerfully focused and productive, leave a lasting and positive mark on society, and help achieve a more peaceful world.”

The Legacy Women Movement
By 2023: 50,000 legacy women of all ages and stages doing extraordinary things to change the world.
Our legacy is the pioneering of a movement for the continuation of women’s evolution in America and beyond. Our legacy is accelerating the leadership development of women by creating conversation, community, and collaboration platforms for women to learn, grow, network, and thrive together. Our Legacy is to help you find and cultivate your legacy.
You are being introduced to us at a very important time in our history: The beginning. After months of deliberation over what women really needed to be successful at making a difference, on May 17th, 2012, we launched our legacy as The Legacy Women Movement.
Our goal is to grow and link communities of women all over the world. The larger we become the better we are able to serve you. Our goal is to help market women and support them in their legacy goals. We need each other to be supported in the unique way we go about making a difference.
Now that we have launched our legacy, we are deeply committed to helping you do the same. We recognize that to achieve our goal of networking women all over the world, we need your help. We want and need you to be a part of the Legacy Women Movement.
Our Legacy Philosophy
Your Life Is Your Legacy
Life is a gift—your journey guided by the soul of your dreams
and manifested by the deeds of your heart.
Your life is your legacy and your gift to those who follow.
Be the Dream, Be the Heart, Be the Gift.
By: Dr. Melody A. Cofield, Founder
Legacy Women Institute International is a women’s network and social enterprise that provides legacy education as well as a variety of support services to accelerate the leadership development of women who want to make a difference. We create conversation, community, and collaboration platforms for women to learn, grow, network, launch, expand, and thrive together.
As pioneers of the Legacy Women Movement, we are committed to the continuation of women’s evolution in America and beyond. Our mission is to focus the brainpower, perspective, and leadership of women to achieve a balanced-gender approach to addressing 21st Century issues and for changing the world. We do this by providing legacy cultivation; documentation, education, branding, promotion, and media support services to launch women in leadership roles.
Harness the Underutilized Potential of Over Half our Society
Women occupy less than 6% of senior executive postions and less than 20% of managerial positions. In other countries, these numbers are significantly less. Without participation in leadership positions and decision-making roles, women are unable to participate fully in decisions that shape their lives and the lives of future generations. This means communities and countries worldwide are unable to capitalize on the full potential of over half their societies.
Break Generational Gender Barriers
Women suffer restrictions on their ability to operate at full potential on many fronts. The aftermath of nearly a century and a half of women’s suffrage left social stigmas, customs, and consciousness that viewed women as inferior.
Generate and document the accomplishments and contribution of women and Her-History
Women were considered assets prior to the 19th Amendment: A time when women’s ideas, work, and accomplishments were not considered worthy of being captured for historical purposes. Because of this, there is a huge gap and a lack of historical citation and documentation of their achievements and consequently, we have few women role models for both women and for men. Case studies and educational materials often do not role model the works, deeds, and strategies contributed by women. Institutionalized structures and laws that had to be legally restructured continue to be disempowering forces in the world. It has been a struggle for women to have equal access to financial support, knowledge, opportunities, and the tools compared to their gender counterparts, which has resulted in generational setbacks.
Join us. Share your energy. Cultivate your legacy.
Our mission is to focus the brainpower, perspective, and leadership of women to achieve a balanced-gender approach to addressing the issues of the 21st Century and to change the world.
