Organization of Women Executives serves as an organization that advances the business and professional status of its members. Our monthly luncheons encourage women to network with other women in business in an effort to promote better business relations in all segments of the business community. We also provide workshops and information of skills women need in order to be strong and successful business women.
Support & Build a Network of Like-Minded Women
O.W.E. provides opportunities for members to make business contacts, lay ground for business transactions in a relaxed and informal environment, and explore best practices that can be applied to their business. During our monthly luncheons or after hour mixers, members can use our platform to network and empower other women.
Online Member Directory
Each member will be added to our Online Member Directory. Members and guests can access your contact information and be directed to your website. This is designed so everyone can share this directory and increase visits to your website and business.
Free Advertisement Through Social Media
Our PR Team is working diligently in promoting members' business and services through our social media networks. Member recognitions and achievements are also promoted through our social media.
Access to Facebook Community Page
The Facebook community page is designed to allow members to share their upcoming events, search for services, or share special offers. This community is a private group that has reached over 200 people which allow members to connect and advertise services.
Access to Free Educational Seminars
Part of O.W.E.'s mission is to provide "educational services significant to the professional woman" and OWE will be providing Free trainings designed by the Board and Members. O.W.E. is also constantly searching for local and non-local seminars and conventions to take members.

Members will have the opportunity to sponsor events which will provide exposure to their business.
