Power Forward is Michigan Women Forward’s membership group for women rising in their careers and communities.

Our Mission: Power Rising exists to support the work of Michigan Women Forward, create collective power for women, and advance the next generation of women leaders in Michigan.

Supporting the work of Michigan Women Forward: Members pledge to contribute $600 to Michigan Women Forward, or $50 a month, to benefit women and girls across the state. Members will have opportunities to volunteer and engage directly with the women they are helping, including mentorship opportunities for young women.

Creating Collective Power for Women: Power Rising members will have access to member-only networking events, leadership opportunities, and informal mentorship from MWF’s Power of 100 Women group. Members will be encouraged to share skills and teach one another.

Advancing the next generation of leaders in Michigan: We are the leaders we’ve been waiting for. Join Power Rising to get ahead in your industry and help other women do the same.
