WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL NETWORK  

Mission:

A Promise to Our Community...

Dear Friends,
Earlier this year, the Women's Professional Network committed to acting on the necessary changes that ensured we were a community that served and respected one another.  This state of solidarity remains true, and we want that to reflect in our actions as we continue to move forward.

WPN was established in 1992 and has grown in many ways, including the acknowledgment of our responsibility to intentionally build a community that is stronger, more equitable, and more resilient than ever before.  With all growth comes transition.  Women's Professional Network will continue to look to our past as a way of enriching our future.  We will use our experiences to evolve our knowledge of inclusion, mentorship, and compassion for all WPN members and our communities.
We proudly share our revised mission statement:

The Women’s Professional Network (WPN) exists as a welcoming group of businesswomen who mentor, empower and advocate for each other and their communities.  We accept and support all, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, social-economic level, or sexual orientation.

WPN is here to help strengthen the leadership and voice of all women. We believe that women should be heard.   
It is Time...  To Re-build
                    To Support
                  To Inspire
                       To Grow
