For over 40 years, the Network of Executive Women (NEW) has been dedicated to helping support the educational goals of women in need, and who are returning to school to improve their lives and their financial security. Despite the incredible demands made on these women, they commit themselves to furthering their education in pursuit of a better life for themselves and their families.
