our Purpose

 “To be powerful is to live in a way that exuberates positivity and growth in your life and the lives of those around you. Being powerful is a lifestyle, a trait that subconsciously becomes apart of you.”

When The Powerful Women was founded in 2013, it was built on a desire to serve womankind. The world-renowned organization, therefore, aims to cultivate a culture of excellence for women through high standards and accountability.

The Powerful Women embraces womanhood, celebrating us in our entirety by functioning as a supportive community. Furthermore, The Powerful Women instills confidence plus inspires personal and professional development.

Simply put, we are a unique troop of fabulously fierce, yet like-minded individuals who are on a journey to self-discovery.

The Powerful Women with dedication has grown to host six sold-out events including creatively planned luncheons and workshops. The Powerful Women is also home to a signature conference entitled The Powerful Women’s Weekend, which gathers attendees from across the United States and creates an atmosphere perfect for fostering unity.

Specifically designed with the unapologetic, woman in mind, we’re only missing one thing – and that’s you! Tap into your greatest power, building the life of your dreams with The Powerful Women.

  • we do this womanhood thing, unapologetically

the Founder

Meagan Ward is a true visionary and celebrates womanhood without hesitation. Dynamic experiences plus an innate desire to create authentic, genuine relationships fuel her personal mission statement.

After acknowledging the lack of camaraderie among women, she launched The Powerful Women in 2013, an empowerment organization grounded in feminine virtues that rejects societal norms and honors accountability as well as mutual support.

Meagan continuously upholds high standards all while embodying strength and compassion – the same building blocks upon which her renowned organization flourishes.

Encouraging others to recognize their power and potential without shame, The Powerful Women serves as an indisputable hub for excellence. Meagan and The Powerful Women, most importantly however, embody a lifestyle characterized by a no-strings-attached approach to turning dreams into reality.
