Seven local businesswomen launched New Expectations for Women In Mississippi (NEWMS) in 2004 to encourage local women to raise their expectations and reach their potential. NEWMS sponsors workshops, classes, networking events, and resources to address the challenges women face in Mississippi.
NEWMS’s Fairy Godmother program grants funds to improve women’s economic circumstances. Through this program, women help women gain new skills to advance their job opportunities and provide resources to keep a woman employed.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Shawn Evans, Rubye Del Harden, Terri Williams, Sandi Morris, Juanita Floyd, Mary Pace, and Mary Werner who spent countless hours dreaming of what NEWMS could accomplish. Our current board is comprised of local business, and community women who are connected and dedicated to the NEWMS mission.
