What is MCWEN?

The Minority Christian Women Entrepreneurs Network (MCWEN) is one of the fastest growing communities for women of color and faith. It is a thriving community for Christian women of color who have an interest in entrepreneurship and business ownership. Using the Proverbs 31 woman as a model, MCWEN seeks to support women to become impactful and positively influential in their homes, community, and at work.

Minority Christian Women Entrepreneur Network - Founder Originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone, she and her family moved to the United States when she was nine years old due to a civil war that left thousands dead and untold numbers maimed and displaced. She now credits her family's move during the war for her interest in human triumph and perseverance. She has since actively worked to mobilize and empower others.



Presented by MCWEN, The Embracing YOU Conference seeks to partner with companies looking to associate themselves with a high quality event that brings purpose-driven entrepreneurs together for an inspiring experience. This is a unique opportunity to build stronger community ties and promote your business in the process.
