A MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITY:
EPWNG is an organization dedicated to the growth of women - this includes ALL women. To be silent is to be complicit. One of our core values has always been to embrace inclusion and other measures to support diversity. We have long believed we are all better by the diversity that exists within our communities and are proud to recognize all our members. Our values as a networking group are centered on creating a safe space where every member and potential members are welcome, respected, appreciated, and able to express themselves.
Now and moving forward, is a significant time for the black community to be supported by all communities and groups, that includes EPWNG. The time for silence is over and it is time for us to continue learning so we can grow and change as individuals and as a network. As an organization that remains relevant through the difficult times we have been experiencing, we have plans. It begins not only by speaking out, but by listening. One of our initiatives is for our members to have open conversations with one another. These conversations aren't easy, but they have never been more relevant. We are grateful for all of our members and we are proud to stand with you.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat everywhere" - Martin Luther King Jr.
