Women's Network of Northeast Ohio - We Connect. We Empower. We Inspire.

Women’s Network of Northeast Ohio - a local, grassroots, non-profit organization based in Akron - focuses on the professional and core leadership development of women professionals. We are dedicated to helping women grow their skill-set through either learning new skills at our workshops or meetings, or by taking a leadership position on a committee within the organization.
