I’ve had the very fortunate opportunity of being helped and mentored by many women over the course of my career. CWE does exactly this, in a structured and formal environment focusing on women who are in the initial phases of business creation. I also love that CWE provides training and support for women in lower or moderate income brackets. The CWE team is best in class at fueling economic growth for local communities through advancing women owned business, it is an absolute pleasure to be on the Board.
