Women in Motion of High Point is a women’s initiative that addresses the critical needs of women living in the greater High Point community, including Archdale, Trinity, Thomasville, and Jamestown, by promoting leadership, professional success, personal wellness, and financial independence


In 2015, Women in Motion started as a women's fund in honor of Gwendolyn "Gwen" Kay Brayton. Gwen was a mother of five who loved, nurtured, and guided her children while putting her own dreams and aspirations on hold--a story familiar to many women who care for others amid their personal and professional lives.


Gwen encouraged education, financial independence, and following dreams. Women in Motion is honored to carry out the values that Gwen inspired through funding and programming. We are grateful for the support of our fiscal sponsor United Way of Greater High Point who has been vital in assisting us to carry out our mission.
