Welcome to Empowered Women International’s blog!

Empowered Women International (EWI), a program of Latino Economic Development Center, is a women’s entrepreneurial development program that has helped thousands of women overcome barriers and transform their own lives and contribute to their communities. On our blog, we share content about women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship, and about the latest happenings at EWI.

Our content includes topical posts about the state of women's entrepreneurship and empowerment and narrative posts, like the EWI Stories project. EWI Stories creates a platform for the stories of local women entrepreneurs who are EWI program alumnae. We also invite special contributors to write EWI op-eds and articles about their areas of expertise, ranging from financial wellness, mindset and mental health, and entrepreneurship.

We love sharing our work and the work of the amazing women in our network. Subscribe to our newsletter or check back regularly to keep up-to-date with all the content we share!
