“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t.

I never painted dreams.

I painted my own reality.”

- Frida Kahlo

Women for Wealth and Wellness Network Event

We have the Pan Dulce (Mexican Sweetbread) and the ganas (deep passion) to do this Bilingual event!

~Habrá intérpretes para hispanohablantes~

Cultura cura! Culture heals! Join us for this interactive event of culture, money talk, curandera, Mujeres, and high-impact everyday women coming together!

And YES, you can come if you don't speak Spanish! Make new friends, have some food and childcare will be provided for ages 4-10 years old.

What is the thing that brings us together? Culture!

Our speaker Afra Smith is a powerhouse presenter; she speaks on the chains of generational trauma of money and finance for women. Adina Appelbaum, co-creator of Immigrant Finance, is a national speaker on investing as an undocumented person. Get moving with Robbi Dominguez from Studio 11!

​Black, Latinas, and all women continue to make less than men in the job market and business growth. Midwest Mujeres' mission is to break the isolation of living in the Midwest and close the wage gap!

Meet the women who we collaborate and empower

Midwest Mujeres Collective program is a collective mentorship for multicultural women, where we are supporting each other in entrepreneurial or career growth. We focus on networking, mentoring, financial education, and professional development. All to close the wage gap for ALL women.


"I created Midwest Mujeres Mentoring to help Latinas and women expand their network and grow their own businesses or professional knowledge, all the while helping women of color speakers and leaders reach their target audience," says Esparza, Founder.


We host mentoring and educational events for women building their own movements, and we provide entrepreneurial coaching.
