Professional Women United
Professional Women United is a professional women’s organization.
Our mission is to transform women inside and out, and then empower them to help transform our world as “Architects of Change”. We encourage women to pass on the wisdom, life-lessons and practical tools they have learned to empower others to see themselves as capable of making a difference in the community and the world.
Our goal is to help develop women’s professional growth, provide an avenue for philanthropy and build a powerful network of local women who strive for success.
We promote business growth and career development through interactive distinguished speaker meetings, powerful networking mixers with other organizations/businesses, seminars and webinars.
In addition, our organization is dedicated to making a difference in our community, especially for the underprivileged and distressed women and children in Orange County.
