Our Community Expectations

Welcome to the Center for Women & Enterprise community! We are excited to work with you! CWE programming is delivered in alignment with our company’s core values: respect, equity, collaboration, innovation, diversity, and joy. We are committed to providing a safe space for learning and connecting for everyone. We celebrate all humans, inclusive of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity or other identifiers. We do our best to approach our programming from a feminist perspective that is secular and non-partisan, and are committed to doing better. We are committed to guaranteeing a safe, enjoyable, and meaningful experience for our clients, facilitators, counselors and staff. By participating in our programs, you agree to these principles. We reserve the right to remove participants from any session in the event of violation of these principles.
