Strategic Alliances

To borrow from the African proverb “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child,” it also “takes a village” to advance the influence of professional women while helping to develop the next generation of leaders. That's why we enthusiastically endorse organizations that support and reinforce our mission.


The POWER of Professional WoMen forms Strategic Alliances with 501(C)3 and 501(C)6 organizations whose mission aligns with the POWER Mission;

Through the POWER of collaboration and social responsibility, the number and influence of women leaders will increase while helping to develop the next generation of leaders in a diverse workplace while strengthening their communities.

POWER fosters collaboration with its Strategic Alliance organizations to work together towards achieving their mission goals, while doing good for the community in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
