We believe that lifting up women benefits everyone.

That is why, for more than 25 years, we have been helping aspiring women entrepreneurs and business owners to launch and grow their business by meeting them where they are and providing greater access to the resources, tools, and support they need to achieve business success. Because when we empower women to succeed economically, they are better positioned to support themselves, their families and the communities around them. At CWE, we lift up the women who lift up the world.

CWE welcomes anyone who identifies as a woman regardless of assignment at birth.

We are thrilled to share our new look!

Our Brand refresh is a culmination of research conducted throughout all channels of the organization to discover what current perceptions and opportunities existed that could be built upon.  The result of our learnings is our new visual identity which more fully supports CWE’s evolving personality and values. 

Our new colors and logo embrace our brand pillars of equity, accessibility, inclusion, resilience, and optimism in a fresh, fun, confident, and charismatic way.

To us, being a small business owner or entrepreneur is a little bit like being a super hero.

You create something from absolutely nothing taking a risk and leap of faith because you know the impact you can have on the world around you while creating the life you have been dreaming about. 

We believe it's BOLD. We believe it's BRAVE. We believe it's MAGICAL.
