Network for Enterprising Women


​​"Network" began in 1978 in Fort Worth, Texas by 3 local women to meet the need for support for working women.  They wanted to create a group with:
  • an atmosphere where women could support each other
  • a networking possibilities which includes a wide ranges of ages, interests, & backgrounds
  • a chance to talk and brag about accomplishments & successes
  • some informality and ease of operation.

"Network" continues to this day as a place for women to come in a pleasant, supportive, gathering where they can share ideas, skills and experiences in a non-judgmental, accepting environment.

​Network for Enterprising Women is a group of professional women who share interests in women related issues.

​Membership is open to women who wish to share ideas, skills & experience in a non-judgmental, accepting environment.  The group functions as an informal information network & a source of support providing personal & professional growth opportunities.


 I joined Network in the fall of 1982. I was new in Fort Worth, having moved from San Antonio, and I knew that to get myself established and find a job and make some friends and find out what’s going on, I needed to get into some kind of women’s group. So I just came. I was very cordially received. Network was quite a large organization then, and growing. I remember Susan Kneten was, I think, president or just had been or was about to be, and she was a very busy person, but she was always very friendly to me, and I appreciated that very much. I also remember talking to Katie Sherrod on several occasions and Sarah Walker, a lot of the old timers who are still there. I was just accepted and welcomed and got some good ideas on what to do and where to go and how to do it, and I just, from the very first time, felt quite at home. ​
