CREATING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN INC
May 19, 2010
As someone whose own mother immigrated to the US and opened a business still operating successfully 30 years later, I was honored to teach a class for C.E.O. Women. Their staff members together make an intelligent, organized, and dedicated team that is passionate about empowering women. Recognizing the pivotal role women play in immigrant communities, C.E.O. Women is working hard to create a model of change that, as the organization grows and matures, can have an enormous impact on the economic, cultural and psychological health of immigrant women and their families. They are young, still, as an organization, and like all nonprofits now, must adapt to the changing landscape. However, of the many nonprofits I've worked with, from one-time volunteer to long-term board member, C.E.O. Women has been the most responsive and supportive in helping me contribute in a way appropriate to my skills.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
hearing the stories of their clients and seeing the successful growth of their businesses in the Bay Area. Catering companies, copy shops, custom tailoring, jewelry design: the women who benefit from the programs seem to apply concretely what they learn.
