Emerging Leader Application
The eWomen Network is an international, values-based organization that provides entrepreneurs with the resources they need to thrive. We are a community who strives to live out our values. Our values to “Give First, Share Always” and “Lift Others as You Climb” have led our Atlanta eWomen chapter to nominate an outstanding young woman entrepreneur for the eWomen Foundation’s Emerging Leader Program each year since 2022.
This program is part of the broader eWomen Foundation Emerging Leader Program, which reaches out to women between the ages of 22-29 who demonstrate excellence in academics, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. We seek out the “bright and bright-eyed” and recognize them for their accomplishments and commitment, particularly as it relates to giving back to their communities.
In Atlanta, we added an element of providing “Femtors” for our Emerging Leader candidates. Femtors are members of our eWomen community whose expertise is offered to help our Emerging Leaders grow and develop in their entrepreneurial and philanthropic efforts. When our Emerging Leader requests a resource, we tap into our community to connect them with a member who can guide them through their challenges and help them succeed.
The Atlanta eWomen chapter will select and nominate one young woman as an Emerging Leader to represent our chapter at the Annual eWomen International Conference and Business Expo, where the eWomen Foundation will award one of the finalists the title of Emerging Leader of the Year. Through the eWomen Foundation, the chapter sponsors the Emerging Leader’s attendance at the annual conference flies her to Dallas, covers her lodging and meals, as well as hosting her at private receptions and workshops just for Emerging Leader finalists
Experiencing the power of attending the eWomen International Conference is just the beginning! These young women are also granted a complimentary one-year membership to eWomen Network, which allows them to access the web of support and resources beyond the Atlanta chapter.
