Brenda Morant (Founder)

Ms. Brenda Morant is a social entrepreneur and a champion of using innovative strategies and solutions to improve people's lives.  

 

Women continually are recognized as the largest and fastest growing economy and as they strategically position themselves both collectively and individually, to have a greater impact in the economic mainstream, it is important that women are comprehensively prepared to participate in all aspects of society. Their impact on the global economy will be historic and have significantly multiplier effects.  PepsiCo's Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Indra Nooyi, stated that "Women are the biggest emerging market in the world".

 

 The International Women’s Center (IWC) is the program and implementation support “arm” of IWTT.  The IWC actively advocates for the personal and professional enrichment of women and girls of the global community through mentorship, intercultural exchange, entrepreneurship, business development, leadership training and the sharing of ideas. IWC’s motto is: “Educate a Woman, Educate the Community, Educate the World”.  

 

Presently, in the United States, we are one of a very few think tanks that are devoted to issues related to women and girls which is also co-joined with an International Women’s Center.  IWTT is definitely a pioneer.
