WeDames Organization is more than a women’s cyber-publication or networking hub, it is a community for women to connect and celebrate one another’s unique interests and individuality. This circle seeks to empower women by celebrating their social nature and creativity by creating a space for them to come together; networking socially, personally and professionally.
To provide a platform to empower women through social, fun events whereby they learn about local businesses in a pitch-free setting and connect with other women in and around Springfield, Missouri.
To increase the quality of living for individuals in and around Springfield, while simultaneously stimulating the local economy.
Essentially, WeDames is a Social Enterprised comprised of two main parts: the online magazine and event management.
WeDames Online Magazine
The aim of WeDames Online Magazine is to highlight events, happenings and local businesses in and around Springfield, Missouri. We also participate in market research by connecting with our readers and finding out what makes them tick, their likes and dislikes, and their preferences. This has proven to be invaluable to our goodie-bag sponsors, as they receive first-hand feedback from the most influential target audience in Springfield – women!
WeDames Social and Corporate Events
We host social events, business mixers, and of course corporate events. For our social events and business mixers, please visit our MeetUp page here. These social mixers were created in the spirit of fun to get Springfieldians not only to meet new people but to do so in a fun atmosphere in a local venue on an evening that isn’t typically busy. We do this to support our local economy and to get out there and explore Springfield, MO.!
Keep in mind, there is a difference between our social and corporate events. Social is keeping it light and fun, and our corporate events is a great way to market your business, products, and services to Springfield’s most influential market segment: women!
The aim of our WeDames Corporate Events is to empower women by giving them a space to learn about local businesses in a fun, safe environment where she can retain more information while building rapport with the speakers. As it turns out, when you can present information to an audience who is open and receptive to listening, not only do you educate them on your business, but they remember you and THINK of you when they need your products or services!
Is WeDames A Feminist Organization?
WeDames is all about one thing: empowering women by edutaining them on local businesses in a fun atmosphere. While we don’t label ourselves as feminist or non-feminist, we do build up, empower and honor feminity. We do not believe in tearing down people of another race, gender or religion as we celebrate diversity. We do this by having fun-filled educational gatherings and by publishing relevant articles and blogs on our online publication.

A Message From Jana:
“I am excited and eager to present WeDames to Springfield, and we look forward to the many benefits that this organization can create for men, women and the community. Being a women entrepreneur, I understand the power of relationships is extremely significant in the personal and professional lives of people. In recognizing this fact, we cultivated a vision of combining fun and professionalism in an exciting new networking community which will simultaneously expand brand awareness and sales of local Springfield businesses. In short, we aim to stimulate the local economy of Springfield, Missouri by hosting a unique women’s community and online women’s magazine that highlights notable businesses in and around our little city.
Many people have seen how women contribute greatly to the overall quality of living to their community: whether they are household CEO’s, professionals, single mothers or self-employed if a woman is happy, everyone around her benefits including her family, coworkers, husband or friends. All things considered, women also have a need to connect with others verbally and emotionally and often when they do, the result is nothing short of magical. This is how we celebrate femininity: by bringing women together and empowering them by educating them on local businesses.
WeDames provides a space (both locally and virtually) for women to connect and grow with others in Springfield, Missouri.”
