PWEN is committed to strengthening the economy of the women we serve all around the world and one surefire way to fulfill this mission is to support our female entrepreneurs. We provide entrepreneurship training through our NLEAD Academy and we are thrilled to now host our monthly Secure the Bag Business Showcase!

What is the Secure the Bag Business Showcase?

Each month PWEN will spotlight a female entrepreneur. That spotlight will include, a feature in our monthly newsletter, month long promotion throughout the PWEN social media platform, a live business interview shared on FB and YouTube, and business mentoring if needed to ensure the business is ready for the showcase.

One thing about the pandemic of 2020 it showed us how fragile many of our small businesses are and can easily be here today but gone tomorrow. We love the tenacity of our female entrepreneurs and we want to do our part as an organization to help them thrive by encouraging financial support and raising business awareness.

This program is made possible by our PWEN Partners, donations, and grants. PWEN is doing what we do best, now we are asking you to join us by supporting our business of the month!

February Showcase Business

Community Responders is an International Emergency Preparedness Training organization, offering a large variety of life saving courses for all levels of experience. Owned and operated by Shae Freeman, an Arizona Paramedic, our organization offers training for individuals and businesses throughout Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and Puerto Penasco, Mexico.


Courses include basic CPR and First Aid, state mandated training such as Article 9 for caregivers, active shooter safety training; as well as advanced medical training for trauma response teams, nurses, EMS and Fire personnel, to FEMA level classes like Hospital Emergency Response and Terrorist Bombing awareness classes!


In addition to the services that Community Responders offers as a for-profit organization, our sister company is the Be A LifeSaver Foundation. This 501c3 Nonprofit charity provides FREE basic CPR/First Aid and other awareness classes for individuals who may not otherwise be able to afford certification (that may be necessary for job opportunities); or live in high crime, rural or primarily Hispanic and Black communities where statistics show that individuals are less likely to be saved in an emergency due to a lack of adequate training.


The motto for both organizations is simply to “Be A LifeSaver!” The more education made available to the public, the more lives that may potentially be saved. We are looking for Individual and Corporate sponsors for the Be A LifeSaver Foundation. Sponsorship levels starting at $250 will allow a minimum of 10 people to learn this very necessary lifesaving training with certification. Anyone who registers for a CPR/First Aid class with Community Responders ANYTIME throughout 2022 and mentions “PWEN" will receive a 20% discount.
