“The XWN program helped me become more involved and gain a greater understanding of Women’s Network. In return, I’ve stepped into a leadership position, have great company exposure, and developed a strong network of friends. I highly recommend the XWN program for new members and those seeking to gain more from their membership. Take the XWN challenge!”
