Description

Join us on Saturday, August 10th, 2019 at our 2019 Annual Fundraising and Awards Dinner to celebrate and honor extraordinary and inspirational women professionals and entrepreneurs whose work embody the spirit of our organization. The ANWEP Woman of the Year Award honors women who have led the way in advancing equity, economic security and leadership for women and girls in our communities through mentorship, leadership and contribution to the advancement of women in STEM or other male dominated fields.

The Association of Nigerian Women Entrepreneurs and Professionals (ANWEP) "Woman of the Year" award is the highest individual honor that ANWEP bestows. The 2019 Award recipient will be honored at the ANWEP 2019 Annual Fundraising and Awards Dinner.

ANWEP will also honor a few leaders in our community whose philanthropic endeavors and exemplary leadership resonate with ANWEP’s core mission.

Proceeds from our 2019 annual fundraising dinner will benefit our Empower Girls in STEM initiative which enables us to provide ongoing mentorship and academic scholarships to high school students in Denton and Dallas counties (Identified through their local school districts in Dallas and Denton Counties) who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM and currently maintaining a GPA of 3.5 and above on the 4-point scale.

The ANWEP “Empower Girls in STEM” program gives underrepresented groups, particularly girls and women, a window into STEM careers and builds a network of support and ongoing mentorship for female students who are interested in studying and practicing STEM.
