Our Mission & Vision
RAWW© (Real Authentic Women Wellness) is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit that promotes the comprehensive wellbeing of women. Our mission is to enhance a woman’s mental, physical, sexual and spiritual health as well as encourage self-fulfillment. Our strategy focuses on creating dialogue around critical taboo-natured topics in specifically nonclinical spaces. RAWW’s vision is to play a significant role in breaking down cultural barriers and taboos surrounding women wellness, especially within our minority communities. We strive to make uncomfortable conversations about sex and anxiety a thing of the past and move towards a more progressive and educated society where women are empowered to live a ‘real and authentic’ life. The concept is simple: to create a welcoming space for women to talk about important issues that are not typically discussed openly (such as anxiety, depression, weight, sex). We do this by convening social educational events known as RAWWTalks with the best, most dynamic experts on the topics.
“This was an incredibly well executed event that left me feeling connected to sisters I had never met before. There was such a powerful vibe in the air of connectedness, love and camaraderie that hit me the moment I stepped through the doors. Super emotional, powerful speakers whose personal journeys resonated with me and made me recognize how important it is to have a voice and support organizations who are trying to make a difference in these areas. Lastly, it left me with the overwhelming need to share my own personal story of childhood rape and trauma as well as domestic violence in order to empower and give hope to women who have suffered or are still suffering in these areas.”

“Last night was so POWERFUL. I’ve been wrestling with the emotions this stirred up for me, and it has me diving deeper into my own story. The pieces that are easy to accept, and the pieces that I still struggle to own or identify out of pain and fear. I am feeling reaffirmed at how much owning our FULL stories is the only way we can be effective and authentic leaders.”
