GWEN Program

Gathering Women for Education and Networking (GWEN)

The GWEN Program includes workshops for women who want to enhance personal and professional skills, such as financial decision-making, negotiation, and healthy lifestyle choices. This series of workshops helps to strengthen the education and skills women need to improve, organize, and create success in their lives. Participants will be provided action items to immediately put the information learned into action and use the resources provided to help improve their life.

October 1st, 8th and 15th

Three different classes are offered in this series. We strongly recommend you attend all three to get the full benefit of this workshop at Pinnacle Financial Partners, 1300 E. Hartley Dr., High Point, NC 27260

“As the current CEO and the first woman to head the High Point Housing Authority, and a former resident of the Housing Authority, I am overwhelmed by the heartfelt desire to empower working women within our communities.

The programs being developed by Women in Motion and the GWEN programs are more than beneficial to the working women within the HPHA programs, they are also beneficial to me personally and professionally and will benefit so many women.

I cannot begin to imagine the possibilities that these initiatives and programs would have afforded me if they were available during my transition from public assistance to financial independence. Women in Motion understands that empowerment requires the appropriate support, training, tools, resources, and guidance to succeed. Empowerment is a proven technique to achieve one’s highest potential. 

The opportunity for women to come together from various cultures, social and economic backgrounds to support and build empowerment is phenomenal!”
