Whole Woman Network, WWN, is an Empowerment and Leadership Social Enterprise founded by two Nigerian ladies (resident in Canada), Diana Barikor-Wiwa and Juliet ‘Kego Ume-Onyido, while both were undertaking their Masters’ degrees at the University of Toronto, Canada and Manchester Business school, University of Manchester, UK, respectively.
WWN was initially started as an informal Networking group for a few African women in the diaspora. The objectives were simply to provide a safe space and hold one another accountable on their various goals and dreams, to motivate and share tips and strategies on healthy lifestyle (‘Business-Financial-Spiritual-Leisure-Health-Work-Life’ integration).
As the membership base expanded, the group soon morphed into a registered organization on December 4, 2010 with a formal launch event at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. The organization’s head office is still currently based in Ontario, Canada. However, most programs are now delivered in Africa.
