Tell Me About PWEN...
PWEN's mission is to strengthen the economic status, leadership, and power of women as they take their success to the next level. A woman’s self-esteem, self-image, and self-confidence are greatly enhanced as she learns her purpose, her various gifts, talents and abilities. Which in turn makes her a better mother, wife, parent, businesswoman, etc. Someone once said that our life reflects our attitudes and therefore having a new attitude will invariably create new results. Thus, it is our goal to help women develop new attitudes toward their circumstances and to help them rise above them.

Carrie J. Gray Scholarship & Award Program
Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world.
The Entrepreneurship Development Program consists of minority participants exploring entrepreneurship as a career path choice, aggressively completing their business plan, or have an existing business needing assistance to advance. The objectives of the program are to:
1. To motivate the entrepreneurial instinct.
2.The ability to identify entrepreneurial opportunities that exist, those that represent untapped markets and underserved markets, and those that can be created by applying existing technologies to new fields and new markets.
3. Develop a funding strategy using what you learn about different types of funding sources and learn how to develop a complete set of financial projections for your business.
4. To develop various business related skills of marketing, leadership, team building, quality management, networking, presentation skills, meeting/event planning, minority certifications, and human resource management etc.
5. Collaborate with other entrepreneurs with similar interests that may lead to partnering opportunities and or new ways of doing business.
6.Participate in on-going mentoring/support in starting and running your business.
PWEN believes education is vital to the future of our world. We see everyday in low income households where higher education is not easily achieved. It is easy for our low income students to get into college but then the expenses pile up and our future leaders find themselves dropping out at alarming rates. The Carrie J. Gray program provides financial support coupled with mentoring to help young ladies complete their collegiate journey.
