About

Monette Toverada

I am coach and a trainer with specific interest directed toward helping individuals and small businesses grow. I am very passionate about making a difference. In a patriarchal and biased society, I understand that taking meaningful strides towards fulfillment is a tough course for women. Nevertheless, we believe in feminine unity; therefore, BWCWorld has started to promote strength amongst women, via networking and business collaboration, to foster professional and personal growth.

We understand that women experience a lot of pressure in our current and specifically within their careers. BWC provides an avenue for women to be self-expressed, establishing connection among like-minds, and by strengthening their focus on their respective goals.

“I have been an entrepreneur for over two decades and love networking with other like-minded women who are committed to supporting other women and excellence in their field. As a member of BWC, I have the pleasure of encountering both! You should come visit a chapter and see for yourself the inspired community of collaborative women that need to meet you and vice versa, you will be glad you did.”

Joyce Higashi

“I discovered BWC through Meet-Up and after my first meeting I immediately knew it was the organization for me. BWC is a dynamic group of spectacular, supportive and savvy businesswomen. With so many networking groups to choose from, BWC stood out for me because they had multiple chapters, they are not industry specific and they feature quality speakers. But I was most impressed with their commitment to give back to the community by regularly highlighting various non-profits. In addition to the regular chapter meetings, Monette provides many fun and interesting opportunities to learn, connect and grow.”

I joined BWC because the very first time I visited the group, I felt welcomed immediately. I felt the warmth and rapport among the women professionals here. As I continued to participate, I witnessed and experienced the strong support, friendship and care that emanate from each of the women members. I like BWC’s abundance mentality. It is fun and adds value to others!

“I love BWC for its warm and welcoming atmosphere. There is an environment of support without any competitiveness. They are not category specific because they believe each individual brings something to the table. Going to a chapter meeting is like spending time with good friends. who laugh with you and not at you. I always look forward to going to the chapter meetings because I know I will see people there that I am happy to see again, as well as meeting new, interesting women who are a value-add to the community.”
