Gain valuable insights into the Women Owned Media and Education Network, and discover what sets us apart from the rest. Learn about our goals and how we’re shaping the future for women.
Women Owned Media and Education Network was initiated out of the passion of its two co-founders Lucia Cabrera-Jones and Jayme Hoyte.
They have known each other for 9 years and have worked separately on many projects for the empowerment of women.
At the beginning of the pandemic, in 2020, the labour participation rate in women declined by 10.3%. This was a cause for more initiatives, geared toward the development of women, and where the initial conversation started.
This idea of creating a platform for women became a reality when both founders decided to join efforts in May 2022 by creating W.O.M.E.N – Women-Owned Media and Education Network. Today, the organization is a fully incorporated NGO under the Act of NGOs of Trinidad and Tobago 2019.
The aim is to provide support, capacity building, advocate for equality, and promote fellowship and diversity.
At the heart of a better future lies the empowerment of women. By providing women with equal opportunities, we are not only doing right by half of the population, but we are also laying the foundation for a more prosperous and equitable world. From the boardroom to the classroom, the empowerment of women has a ripple effect that touches every aspect of society.
So, let’s take a step forward towards creating a future that we can all be proud of. By investing in women and girls, we are not only creating a more level playing field, but we’re also building stronger communities, healthier families and a more vibrant economy.
Together, we can break down the barriers that hold women back and create a world where everyone can thrive. It’s time to take action and make the empowerment of women a priority!
