Capital Womens Network members include state representatives, international business owners, small business owners, educators, writers, doctors, lawyers, and leaders from every walk of life. We support each others work and charitable involvements.
We created and continue to support scholarships at Tallahassee Community College, Florida State University, and Florida A & M University assisting women who are returning to their education. Many recipients are single mothers. All are grateful for the opportunity to live the purpose of our group: women supporting women while ethically enlivening our community and each other.
