What is the thing that brings us together? Our Stories!

About Midwest Mujeres

Midwest Mujeres (Midwest Women) is a mentorship collective for multicultural women's entrepreneurial or career growth. We focus on storytelling, networking, mentoring, marketing, and helping women build their platforms to close the wage gap for all women. We hold quarterly meet-ups and mentoring. 


This project is dedicated to recruiting women with barriers to re-entry work from a long pause or formerly incarcerated women. We train women to become storytellers and public speakers. 

We create a culture of belonging for everyone who wants to celebrate equity, unity, and empowerment for women.

We build community and give our members opportunities to expand their careers or entrepreneurial work through speaking engagements and our annual storytelling event: Yo Quiero Dinero.
