Our Motto: We Are the Change that We Seek.
In 2006, a group of professional Mercer County African-American women used the premise of five pillars: training, education, outreach and referral; spiritual discernment; and, healing, health and wellness to organize, create and incorporate an organization dedicated to the welfare of women of color.
The Institute of Wonderful Women Working for Empowerment (IW3E), a non-profit (501) (c)(3) organization that seeks to promote the well-being of African-American women and their families living in Trenton and Greater Mercer County, New Jersey. IW3E s approach uses a holistic model that focuses on mentoring, public workshops, individual coaching and events that honor and strengthen families and promote economic empowerment.
Through the women that we serve, we work to build strong neighborhoods and community institutions. Through community collaboration, IW3E builds creative programs in the greater Trenton area to offer support to women who are struggling to attend school full or part- time and meet the economic, educational and social
needs of their families.
Our mission is the economic empowerment of women of color through support of education for the health care field.
That women of color are able to transform their economic circumstance through access to career opportunities in all areas of health care.
