PWN was founded in 1983, when five women joined together to establish a network for women in business. The first meeting began on a very dark and stormy night with the expectation that very few women would show up. As it turned out there was standing room only! And, we have built on the momentum since.
Every year PWN honors one special woman whose life and work have impacted members of our network and community. The “Woman of the Year Award” is proudly presented during our Annual Holiday Gala.
Since the network’s inception, PWN has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to help women in business and the non-profit organizations they support.
