CWN is an independent, women-led, volunteer organization dedicated to promoting the advancement of women who work for CDFIs or for organizations that support the Community Development Finance industry. CWN creates opportunities for members to connect, share, and learn from each other to foster their professional success. We seek to mentor emerging practitioners and commit to being a diverse and inclusive organization that reflects the industry and the communities and people we serve.
On November 1, nearly 30 Philadelphia-CDFI women practitioners and supporters gathered for the first networking event of the Philly chapter. The CDFI Womens Network is growing with new chapters forming across the country.
The CDFI Women's Network (CWN) reconvened at OFN's Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. on September 27th. More than 150 women joined the meeting, and there was lots of energy and excitement in the room as we continue to be inspired by the interest in this budding network.
