Woman Within Central USA, Inc., is a non-profit organization that sponsors Woman Within Weekends and supports local communities affiliated with Woman Within in 11 Midwestern states — Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

Woman Within Central USA is one of six regions which comprises the Woman Within Network. Central USA is the birthplace of Woman Within Weekends! We have been sponsoring Woman Within Weekends and building women’s communities since 1990.

Our mission is to create a world where women know, embrace, live, and lead from their truth. We do this by inspiring women to connect with all parts of themselves and to a deep sense of their place in the world.

We fulfill this mission in the following ways:

  • Offering Woman Within Weekends throughout Central USA. For a complete description of the Woman Within Weekend (including a downloadable brochure) visit the Woman Within International website.
  • Supporting local communities of Woman Within graduates to continue their growth and connection. Opportunities at the local level may include:
    Woman Within Circles
    – Community Gatherings
    – Joint activities between Woman Within and Mankind Project
    – Leadership and service opportunities
  • Sponsoring additional programs, workshops, and events within the region.
  • Providing preparation for Woman Within graduates to staff a Woman Within Weekend.
  • Delivering resources such as:
    Woman to Woman Midwest Circle Workbook: Building Vibrant Woman Within Circles

Woman Within Central USA is more than a regional organization; we are a community of women who support and empower each other on our journeys of growth and wholeness.

Woman Within welcomes all women and prohibits discrimination based on race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, disability, veterans status, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
