Women Empowering Nations is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide exposure and mentorship for girls of color in underserved communities to develop them into socially conscious global leaders.
Women Empowering Nations carries out its mission with 3P's that are integral components to our programs: Power, Purpose, and Platform.
Power: Self-esteem and self-efficacy development
Through self-esteem development, young women build this foundational factor that impacts their drive and persistence of behavior. In growing to love and believe in themselves they are more inclined to be confident and receptive to leadership opportunities.
Purpose: Leadership Training and Mentorship
In the development of leadership skills and mentorship, girls gain the ability and conviction to become a principled leader. Developing this skill set and providing opportunities to practice leading, girls grow to become women who lead in school, work, and their community.
Platform: Travel Seminars and International Exposure
The travel seminar expands girls' expectations, self-efficacy, and global view thus lighting a new path of potential outcomes for their life. Girls also develop as citizens who value diversity, challenge bias, and have a passion for continual learning through experience.
WEN's vision is to develop more confident female leaders of color to be equipped and passionate about leading organizations, businesses, schools, and agencies domestically and internationally. We work to contribute to a society where women leaders of color will no longer be viewed as the exception to the rule but as relevant assets and necessary additions to organizations globally.
