Women Executives: Surviving and Thriving in a New World
Dear WE Membership,
Wow, what a time we find ourselves in! Despite the numerous uncertainties and challenges in the world around us, the shared experiences and friendships that bind us together within WE remains unchanged. While I do not know exactly what challenges are ahead as we find ourselves in a pandemic or post-pandemic (hopefully soon!) world, I do know that I want to surround myself more than ever with the people that inspire and nourish me. The mission of WE - supporting and nurturing each other's personal and career growth - has never before been more relevant.
WE Celebrates 40 years!

WINGS Scholarship & Mentoring Program NEWS
WINGS' 25th Anniversary is a significant milestone in the history of Women Executives, providing us the opportunity to "Honor the past. Embrace the present. Empower the future." It is a time of gratitude for our founding mothers who had the vision, and our many WE members who have contributed their time, talent, and treasure to WINGS. It is a time of encouragement for current scholars who are benefiting from the program and pride for our more 114 graduates who are now soaring in their chosen careers or advanced studies.
Our vision for WINGS' next 25 years is to be a recognized champion in Charlotte for improving the economic mobility and stability for women and their families. Through the WINGS Scholarship Program, Women Executives is creating pathways of opportunity for scholars through mentoring, professional development, technology, and access to professional and career networks and community resources.
Our goal is to realize 100% WE member engagement - 70% membership donating and 30% volunteering and/or sharing network connections. Together, we will achieve our vision of being a champion for opportunities to increase economic mobility in Charlotte.
Our 2019/2020 Graduates included two Summa Cum Laude honor graduates, a double major, and a Salutatorian. Many of our graduates are first-generation college students or single parents, and all of them are dynamic, driven women who want to make a difference for themselves, their families, and the community through education and advancement of their opportunities.
