The Jamaican Women of Florida (JWOF), in keeping with their mission to encourage emerging powerful women, will host their 9th Annual Women’s Empowerment Conference Luncheon and Scholarship Fundraiser (WEC) at the Marriot Harbor Beach, Fort Lauderdale.
There will be a networking event on April 1. 2022, 6:00pm to 8:30 pm at Island Space Caribbean Museum in the Westfield Broward Mall. The networking event will allow attendees to connect, learn more about JWOF and our Scholarship program.
This year, the Women’s Empowerment Conference Luncheon and Scholarship Fundraiser theme is Emerging through Challenges, but still, we rise. In keeping with our mission, the day’s activities include a main speaker, Dr. Joan Muir and a panel of powerful women who will present on financial growth, mental health and more and the “Powerful Women… Next Generation Scholarship” awards ceremony to Jamaican-American, college-bound, female, students.

All proceeds raised will be used to fund our annual “Powerful Women…Next Generation” scholarship program. The $5,000 ($1,250 yearly) scholarship is awarded annually to a first or second-generation, Jamaican-American female graduate of a high school in Florida who intends to enroll in a post-secondary institution the following fall semester. This year JWOF will award two scholarships.
This year’s Presenting Sponsor is the Jamaica Tourist Board. We would like to recognize Broward Meat and Fish for their contribution over the years to our scholarship fund. For information on how to support the JWOF scholarship fund, please visit; https://www.jamaicanwomenofflorida.com/donations
