Pensacola Women’s Alliance is a group of women from diverse backgrounds who meet monthly for fellowship, food and networking.
The goals and purposes of the Pensacola Women’s Alliance (PWA) are to:

  1. Encourage the advancement of women by disseminating information and conducting educational seminars.
  2. Promote the acceptance of women in positions of responsibility.
  3. Encourage the expansion of opportunities for women.
  4. Improve the status of women, generally.
  5. Provide a network for working women with representation from a broad range of professions.

We are a networking organization for women in Pensacola, Florida and surrounding areas. We are not a fundraising organization but do support Pensacola State College and the University of West Florida with financial grants.

Pensacola Women’s Alliance members reunited after not meeting in July and August for a “hoot” of a time with Betty Hooten as our speaker.  Betty told “The Tale of Two Libraries” and members delightfully enjoyed her story that demonstrated our mission of encouraging the advancement of women.
