2022 Embracing
YOU Conference
 
Designed for Today's Purpose-Driven Entrepreneur!

August 19 -20, 2022 

ABOUT MCWEN

The Minority Christian Women Entrepreneurs Network (MCWEN) is one of the fastest growing communities for women entrepreneurs. Using the Proverbs 31 woman as a model, MCWEN seeks to support women to become impactful and positively influential women in their homes, community, and work.

 

We recognize that culture is shifting and women of color are now the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, but the women in the MCWEN community do not just want to do business as usual. They are seeking ways to incorporate their values and faith, and believe that business is also about their purpose.
