The Females’ Center of Excellence and Leadership, Inc. (Xcel, Inc.) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the advancement of women and girls of all backgrounds through mentoring, education, networking, scholarship and community service.

Founded as a student organization at Northeastern University by Tricia Brunton in 2002, The Females’ Center of Excellence and Leadership prepared female college students for the 'real world’.
