Our goal is to “Empower Women” - to increase the spiritual, political, social or economic strength of women, by developing confidence, knowledge, worth, high morale and values in their capacities. We will be honored if you can join us. Your presence will encourage, motivate and empower other women and help them to build bridges across culturally diverse communities. 

As of 2020, AWOW is proud to be in its 7th year of operation!

Over the last 7 years, AWOW has successfully brought 16 different communities, performers, artists, dancers and musicians together – reaching approximately 6,000 audience members and participants through 4 major yearly events. Community involvement is key to the success of our goals and we are reaching out to preferred businesses and organizations to be supporters and partners.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all community events and programming have been temporarily suspended in the best interest of our community. We plan to take this time to revisit our goals and mission, and bring even more special events to Winnipeg as soon as it is safe to do so. We look forward to sharing a variety of performances and educational events that highlight the important issues in Asian communities.
