For Valentine’s Day, and throughout the month of February, the Network of enlightened Women, known as NeW, hosts The Gentlemen Showcase to recognize, honor, and encourage gentlemen on campuses across the nation. In 2017, more than 100 young men were nominated in the College and Under 30 categories. Men were nominated from top schools, including American University, Clemson University, Colorado Christian University, Cornell University, Florida State University, George Washington University, Harvard, Penn State, University of Kansas, University of Virginia, and Washington & Lee University. The gentlemen chose various charities to support, such as The American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, The Ronald McDonald House, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Toys for Tots.
The Showcase promotes mutual respect between the sexes at a time when we need it more than ever.
Sponsors include Brooks Brothers, Vineyard Vines, and Kendra Scott.
The Network of enlightened Women is the nation’s premier organization for conservative university women. NeW educates young women on conservative principles, cultivates a community in which to discuss and strengthen these principles, and emboldens young women to speak out on campus and in their communities. NeW is identifying and educating the next generation of women leaders. In addition to campus and young professional chapters, NeW hosts an annual National Conference, hosts professional development events, including the Young Women’s Leadership Retreat, and nationally serves as a voice for conservative women.
