The mission of the Women’s Exchange of Washtenaw is to host unique events where women
business leaders talk through their issues, share experiences and ideas, and form lasting
connections. WXW was founded in 2007 by Ann Arbor business women Carrie Hensel and
Debra Power to fill a need for an organization dedicated to women who are building strong
and growing companies. Today, the WXW serves more than 700 women with interactive
events and networking opportunities.
Women Impacting Public Policy is a non-profit, national bipartisan group with over half-amillion
members. WIPP is The Collective Voice in Washington, DC, for 48 national women
and small business organizations. WIPP advocates for and on behalf of women and minorities
in business in the legislative processes of our nation, creating economic opportunities for
members and building alliances with other small business organizations. WIPP recently issued
its Economic Blueprint which serves as a call to action to the Congress and Administration on
the six core areas essential to women-owned business growth: healthcare, procurement, taxes,
access to capital, energy and telecommunications. Visit www.wipp.org.
