About EWF International
To create more vibrant economies and improve company performance by increasing the number of women in business leadership and ownership.
How We Get There
In order to increase representation, we must address the entire promotion pipeline. EWF has built an ecosystem of programming and communities that meet women where they are in their careers, and equip and empower them to get where they want to go. We help companies invest in the female leaders of today to drive better performance, and develop the leaders of tomorrow to move their companies forward. Our programs are actionable, proven, and focus on growth areas and skills directly tied to higher promotion rates, better performance, and more impact for women and the companies they’re growing.
EWF International was founded in Oklahoma in 1998 with a focus on consulting and supporting female business owners. Within its first 10 years, EWF added forums and events for female executives and broadened its impact. In 2013, Tanis Cornell became the Dallas Licensee and in 2015, she launched the first cohort of Emerging Leaders, planting the seeds for greater expansion. In late 2017, Tanis Cornell and Jennifer Carter partnered to acquire the parent company and moved its headquarters to Dallas, TX. Since that time, they have expanded EWF’s offerings to include a dynamic ecosystem of programs for women and companies across career and business stages, including: executives, business owners, early- and mid-career women, corporate leadership development programs, speaking and facilitation, individualized coaching, and educational resources and events.
