The Pearl Society is comprised of Purposeful, Engaged and Resilient Leaders (PEARL), who are women leading micro-businesses, community organizations and local businesses or institutions supporting a common goal: a commitment to the success and empowerment of women-owned businesses. Leaders of The Pearl Society enhance The Edge Connection’s commitment to enlighten and encourage women entrepreneurs. Their financial support allows The Edge Connection Women’s Business Center to provide relevant, powerful, life-changing support services to women as they follow the path to successful business ownership.

The Story Behind the Pearl…
The pearl society takes its name from the oyster and the pearl. Pearls are created when an irritant enters and oyster, disrupting its natural balance. In response the oyster uses all of its resources to transform the irritant into something beautiful. We have to use all of our resources to transform our challenges into something beautiful. Like pearls, our goals, dreams and challenges are unique. Like the oyster, how we respond to struggles shapes who are and who we become.
