About mpwn

Michigan Professional Women's Professional Network (MPWN) was formed in 1981 by a group of women executives looking for an organization that would provide opportunities for professional development and personal growth.

 

Today MPWN is an organization of professional women representing diverse backgrounds such as accountants, attorneys, bankers, career counselors, educators, engineers, entrepreneurs, financial planners, psychologists and system analysts.

You see, the very reason for our existence is to meet the needs of others, to share information and resources, to increase personal business networks, to give support, exchange ideas and provide valuable information that will help our members reach their personal and professional goals.  MPWN is not a place for self-promotion, instead it is an opportunity to lend a helping hand to someone else.  We believe that what yo do for someone else will always return to you - multiplied many times over.

“No Woman should be an Island alone; Let MPWN be your Bridge."

 

     

 

We are excited to have you join us in our mission to provide professional women of diverse backgrounds, opportunities for professional growth and personal development.    You see, the very reason for our existence is to meet the needs of others, to share resources,  to increase personal business networks, to give support, exchange ideas and provide valuable information that will help you reach your goals.  We understand that the true joy of networking is putting people together to meet their needs.
