Part of a Powerful Alliance
As a proud partner of the OneKC for Women Alliance, Women’s Employment Network is the door to a better life, a future of financial self-sufficiency, and confidence. For women entering or re-entering the workforce, WEN is where to find foundational skills and support. Our graduates are empowered in many ways — professionally and personally, through a community of support. As women become self-sufficient, they are able to be an inspiration to others through sharing their stories, mentoring and, in some instances, starting businesses of their own.
