Connecting, leading and supporting
professional Christian women
to reach their God-given potential
“I had a hard time finding women outside of my workplace to develop deeper relationships with. 4word’s been a place to build strong relationships with women and talk about faith, family, and long-term growth.” — Megan, Portland
4word aims to narrow the gap in resources facing every woman serious about her career, relationships, and faith.
More women are entering the workforce next to men with access to long-established networks and mentors. Yet women find few role models or resources tailored to their unique schedules. 4word offers a safe place for professional women to connect virtually, and in local 4word chapters.
The 4word Vision
:: To lead the next generation of professional women seeking balance in career, relationships, and faith. Business and mentoring expert Diane Paddison’s book, Work, Love, Pray casts the vision.
:: To connect busy working women face-to-face with peers and mentors, and with virtual networking in private forums.
:: To support with practical resources: development-focused weekly blogs, newsletters, inspiring interviews with role models, and a curated resource directory.
Diane Paddison, and the remarkable women who have joined her to form the 4word board, walked this walk and experienced challenges like those you face now. We pray you will find rich insight as you explore the resources gathered here.
