I appreciate the opportunity to gather with, and learn from, like-minded women who are each pursuing their unique path to success. The PWWS network has already been of value to me in my first six months as a member.


PWWS provides us with a diverse networking forum where we can get inspired, connect and achieve. Through innovative monthly topics and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
