Join Us

NIWEE is looking to bring together an exceptional group of people from different walks of life who share common interests and a common purpose. For some, their interest lies in building a side hustle; for others, it's about learning from their peers; for others, it’s finding a new perspective so that they may achieve their dream. While for others, it's about passion and about contributing knowledge and experience to help break down inequities and support women in building their economic well-being.
