At EWAW Women’s Business & Leadership Development Center we have brought together global leaders and our regional community – men and women in a collaborative way to connect, inspire, promote and solve some of the global and local issues concerning the economic future of women and young girls in our society.
We have brought to our community some of the most powerful and innovative summits, conferences and forums that educate and connect women around leadership and prepare young women towards a better economic future for themselves and their families.
Elite Women Around The World® was founded by its CEO, Rita N. Singh in Cleveland, Ohio in May of 2005. The development of the project took five (5) plus years in research, augmentations of vision, strategic direction, execution and implementation of the first phase of the project. The entire idea of forming this diverse global group of women came about from Rita’s involvement and participation over the past thirty (30) years in different organizations. She felt that there was a tremendous need to have a global collaborative network initiative where individuals and companies could tap into the vast resource of women’s knowledge and skills to build entrepreneurship worldwide, women uplifting one another through a structured mentoring program with an effort to bring global closer to home, which led to the formation of a Worldwide Women Skills Data Bank; Mentor Protégé Program and Global Speaker’s Bureau. Since its inception Elite Women Around The World® has brought together a diverse group of women leaders and men who believe, champion and invest in shaping their economic future.
Over the years Rita has developed, created, organized and spearheaded many regional and global civic and economic projects. She is a person of broad and deep accomplishments, with a global mindset to create success strategies worldwide. At various times she has excelled as an expert entrepreneur, brilliant executive coach and leadership strategist, dynamic speaker, moderator, author, philanthropist, thought leader, trained consultant and CPA. Rita’s leadership is making a difference worldwide. Her vision has provided the philanthropic “fuel” to address the vital issues facing our communities. She is an exceptional leader who serves as a role model to others with her unconditional service to her community and to the world.
As of 2019, Elite Women Around The World® began serving the community as EWAW Women’s Business & Leadership Development Center
