Dear PWR Members & Friends,

I’m excited and honored to announce that I’m the new Board President for the awesome women’s organization, PWR. This is also super special since it’s the first time the organization will have both a President (African American) and Vice President (Asian-Pacific) who are women of color.

What is PWR?

PWR is an events-based women’s organization, providing networking, leadership, educational, and personal growth opportunities to a diverse group of professional women in the Greater Philadelphia region.

Why did I take on this challenge?

The business world can be a challenging place for professional women to navigate, but it becomes much easier when you have other positive and authentic women in your tribe to provide a support system. As the former head of membership and D&I for PWR, I feel very strongly about women from all diverse backgrounds and industries being prepared and equipped, with the tools to succeed in any business and professional environment. Now being President I look to continue PWR’s effort to make this happen.

Who do I thank for such an opportunity?

I truly thank both the founders of PWR, and all previous board members, for taking on such an important mission as the empowerment of professional women. I also truly appreciate the most recent Board President, Beth Lawrence, for inspiring me and helping me grow personally to become prepared for such an important leadership position.

What can you expect from PWR moving forward and why should you join?

You can expect an organization providing professional women with a safe space to laugh together, learn from each other, hold each other accountable, and push each other to grow so we all can become the best versions of ourselves.

Now that the torch has been passed to me to lead this organization to nothing less than excellence, I look forward to working with the current board of incredible women to create the most educational, entertaining, and diverse women’s events possible.

Thanks and looking forward to having lots of you amazing women join our organization!


Cherise Wynne
Board President
