IIWC: Irving International Women’s Consortium is a nonpartisan diverse group of women who come together and share experience through their committment to the continuing transformation of themselves and the city of Irving.
IIWC exists to embrace and develop a meaningful presence for the large, multicultural population of Irving. Participants come from all walks of life – CEO’s, stay-at-home moms, retired grandmothers, college students, and small business owners. Women of every age, ethnic group, and economic circumstance unite to share their wisdom, strategies on finance, spirituality, health, and political power to overcome obstacles and charter a new course for their lives and those around them.
IIWC exhibits a strong commitment to celebrating the ebb and flow of ideas, cultures, and thoughts weaving the thread of diversity into each of its programs. With a mission to educate, support, and create opportunities for women of all races, nationalities, cultures, and ethnicities, empowering their energy and skills to be realized in the community.
Irving attracts the international headquarters of top Fortune 500 companies such as Fluor and ExxonMobil making Irving a city where you can have a local address and global access. As City Manager Tommy Gonzalez said, “Irving has more Fortune 500 company headquarters than 23 states in the United States. There are only twenty cities in the United Sates that have five of more Fortune 500 headquarters.”
Home to more than 17 identified races in the year 2000, Irving is one of the most international cities in America, projected to continue to grow in all facets of its diversity, business, social, cultural and economics. This fact was proven with the 2010 census showing that 69.2-percent of the population in Irving is minority, up 17.5-percent from 2000.
In order to prosper and thrive Irving will need to capitalize on the unique talents and abilities of women, such as:
- Building substantial relationships.
- Listening to different points of view.
- Inclusive and creative problem-solving approaches.
- Consideration for the personal impact that decisions may have on individuals, communities, and state.
IIWC understands that the unique demographics of Irving include hundreds of capable women from many cultures who may not independently be able to access the resources required to reach their personal and professional potential.
Join us today as we join together to empower women to bring their experience and talents to the forefront and impact the social, economic and political future of the region.
