Empowered Women International

In 2016 GW Women in Business made an executive decision to support and sponsor Empowered Women International at our First Annual Gala. Through the success of our strong partnership, GW Women in Business has decided to foster a long-term commitment to support Empowered Women International and its core mission:

“To provide a network of support and create opportunities for immigrant and refugee women and families in the Northern Virginia and metropolitan Washington, D.C., area, using the arts as tools of empowerment, communication, cultural understanding and entrepreneurship.”

EWI is an organization that equips these women with the training and support they need to become economically mobile, financially stable and socially engaged. Additionally, the organization provides these talented and creative women with dynamic training programs between professional teachers, mentors and a supportive peer community where they can achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.
