WEW C.R.E.W. EXPERIENCE
CLARITY | REFINEMENT | ENGAGEMENT | WINNING
An understanding of the essential elements that are needed to incorporate in your business. Due to a history of systemic barriers that women entrepreneurs of color, BIPOC Women and women from diverse cultures are faced with, they are often excluded from business opportunities, because they do not have a relationship, need more technical assistance to support submission of their financials, or other barriers that affect their community.
In the USA, gross revenues of non minority women are almost 4.5 times greater than minorities ( A 2019 State of Women Owned Business Report commissioned by American Express). The WEW CREW believes that the platform we provide will help our women succeed, and they will contribute more to the economy working in the environment we have created.
Each group meets monthly, each has an accountability partner, and a minimum of two annual meetings, one domestic and other an international conference.This exchange of information allows them to break through the barriers on how to access more capital, information and opportunities. Other opportunities are with podcasts, live internet interviews, member spotlights on websites, newsletters, etc. As a WEW CREW member, you will learn how to be “social savvy”, identify your niche, show how your business is of a service to others.
“For There Is Always Light If Only We’re Brave Enough To See It. If Only We’re Brave Enough To Be It”-Amanda Gorman
You have found a group who give you support and are with you on your journey. You win because you will learn the following :
How to be a leader and build a management structure.
How to confront any shortcomings that impede you and your company's growth.
How to share your lessons learned from your experiences.
THIS IS WHERE YOU "BELONG"
AS A WEW CREW MEMBER
PEER ADVISORY GROUPS
The WEW CREW is a peer advisory group for exceptional women business owners who are already experiencing a measure of success but who are interested in more. These Owners and CEOs have the aptitude to scale their businesses, but are uncertain about the best way to move forward, and that’s where the power of the WEW CREW performs.
ONE TO ONE STRATEGY
Betty offers one on one consultations for W.E.W. Members on developing a Strategic Business Plan, working with them to identify two to three intentions/objectives that are in alignment with their company mission and vision. She helps the client outline the process so it can be easily executed by them or their management team. By identifying the strategies they will use, the CEO can identify what work needs to be done, and who needs to execute. When they decide to implement the plan, they are in a better position to identify if additional resources are required and if there is a need for more capital.
BUSINESS CONNECTIONS, STRATEGIC INTRODUCTIONS AND NETWORKING
This process for Women of Color, BIPOC and women from diverse cultures is a crucial component in developing your company and long term business growth. We will reach outside of your comfort zone, forging countrywide and global relationships. There will be strategic introductions from all, and your peer advisory group will assist you on how to vet which events you should attend. Our business networking events will help gain more access to opportunities, information, capital and other resources.
