Community Minute: Encouraging entrepreneurship and creativity among immigrant women

Empowered Women International (EWI) is a nonprofit organization that helps immigrant, refugee and low-income women build small businesses and become creative entrepreneurs. EWI’s goals are to create economic, market, and career opportunities for immigrant women and raise awareness and increase appreciation for the cultural contributions they make to the United States. EWI accomplishes this by providing mentoring and education that teaches practical workforce readiness skills for the American business culture in the arts and the creative industries. The organization offers a comprehensive model of empowerment, workforce development and self-sufficiency that includes a three-month intensive entrepreneurial training, a marketplace program and a multicultural outreach program.
