Integrity Women in Business Center, Inc (a 501c 3) Public Charity Organization has been established since August of 2005 and we are proud to let you know of our continued progress and community efforts.
Integrity Women In Business Center, Inc. (iwbc) strives to be nationally and internationally recognized for our responsive, innovative and effective programs and advocacy efforts. Delivering business services and financial assistance to empower women toward entrepreneurship and economic self sufficiency; IWBC will grow as a leader in women's economic development with a budget that is self sustaining. Our roster of expert trainers, industry-specific advisory boards, and a powerful Board of Directors comprised of Virgin Islands women and men considered leaders in their field will propel the organization and its mission forward.
Our long- term goal is to support and empower disadvantaged persons (especially women) of the Virgin Islands towards their goals of personal growth and financial independence. We do this through mentorship programs, educational initiatives and financial literacy seminars and workshops. It has been said that the standard of living in a community is related to the status of the women in that community.
The Women of the Virgin Islands deserve a "Women’s Business Center" that cares for the needs of women in the workforce or trying to get into the workforce.
The women of the Virgin Islands should have a place to go to help develop their ideas and garner the support needed to open their own businesses.
Our Veterans have a place to go to discuss their future goals as they acclimatize back into their community. There is access to needed resources.
There is access to business people throughout the world who have turned their lives around by engaging in the types of programs that IWBC offers and would like to offer.
There is hope for a better quality of life for us all.
WHY YOUR SPONSORSHIP MATTERS
Despite making up over half the country's population, women are underrepresented in corporate enterprises and only five (5) are named to Fortune 500 CEO level status. Women's entrepreneurial issues are underrepresented in the realm of investments and business entrepreneurial training.
Women are nearly half the workforce, yet make up only 12% of the top executives and
12.5% of the corporate officers.
Virgin Islands women-owned businesses make up only ¼ of the business population.
One in every 11 adult women in the U.S. owns a business. Female entrepreneurship has
been growing at twice the national average since 1997.
There were 10.6 million privately-held, women-owned businesses in 2011, and there
were another 3.9 million firms that were equally owned by a woman and a man.
Women make excellent business owners
Since its inception, the IWBC is inspired to position itself to benefit entrepreneurial women in the Virgin Islands through advocacy, networking, investments and community relations. IWBC is dedicated to serving women's initiatives by providing valuable business resources and access to investment capital to women owned enterprises.

Accelerate the rate of growth of women's business and micro enterprise ownership
