The quest to find a solution to a common problem standing in the way of business success is how Sandra Yancey’s entrepreneurial path took root to grow. Networking for business was her nemesis. In 2000, from a room above the garage of her Dallas, Texas suburban home – with limited entrepreneurial experience — Sandra boot-strapped her way to create one of the largest and most decorated business networking organizations in North America, eWomenNetwork.
Today, her company is a multimillion-dollar enterprise with over 500,000 women connected through 118 chapters spread across North America. One of the key ingredients to eWomenNetwork’s 18 continuous years of success is its culture and face-to-face engagement. The company produces over 1,500 women’s business events each year and the largest multi- day International Women’s Business Conference of its kind in North America annually. eWomenNetwork is guided by nine core values, the first of which is “Giving first, sharing always and empowering our community to thrive in an environment of encouragement, kindness and empathy.”
Sandra is an award-winning entrepreneur and is recognized by the International Alliance for Women as one of the world’s 100 Top Difference Makers and by CNN as an American Hero. The eWomenNetwork Foundation she created has, to date, awarded cash grants to 115 non-profit organizations and scholarships to 167 emerging female leaders of tomorrow.
