What is the group about?

The Tuolumne County Women’s Network was organized to provide an opportunity for women in the business community to meet regularly in order to build their businesses though networking.  The organization provides social and educational meetings which focus on business opportunities and development for women.  TCWN reaches out to women with an invitation to join the group’s common purpose of supporting each other’s professional endeavors while also encouraging personal growth.

How long has the group been around?

The TCWN was founded in 1990 by Judy Grossman and Diane Morgan.  After attending a Women’s Network meeting in Calaveras County they realized that Tuolumne County had the same needs.  The first meeting was attended by 20 women ready to take on the world.
