Our Mission

Network of Executive Women addresses the common business interests and issues of women in executive, professional and entrepreneurial roles through the exchange of ideas, information, and experience. 


The organization was founded in 1979 by Phyllis Holt, to address the common interests of business women in the community and help us grow and prosper.  


NEW is also dedicated to providing educational opportunities for women in need of financial assistance by awarding annual scholarships to be applied toward tuition and/or books. These scholarships are funded through NEW sponsored events, member participation and private donations.


NEW is an affiliate of the Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce. Members do not have to be Chamber members or work or reside in Milford but we feel that our organization best serves those who work in New Haven and Fairfield Counties.
