Girlfriends Who Inspire Change (GWIC), LLC is a cause-driven social enterprise network that sells E-Commerce products and services online. The business concept uses goods and services to address social evils and economic inequality. The vision of GWIC is for All women. Still, it was designed with Black women in mind to inspire women to become a better version of themselves and more socially responsible in their communities.
The business model combines the social impact of a non-profit with a for-profit commercial strategy to make a difference in All people's lives, including underrepresented communities. We inspire women and girls to be self-sufficient and social change agents. International groups and sisterhood networks form the basis of our collaborative partnerships, in which a shared interest unites us in economic and social transformation.
