Our Mission & Values
Our Mission & Values
SheVille.org is a Women’s Online Community Magazine. Our primary areas of interest are women’s lives & health, local community, business & finance, the arts & writing, sustainability & the environment. SheVille’s featured articles focus attention on current progressive news about policies that impact women and families within the context of racial, gender, educational, and economic issues with special attention in the area of social justice. We believe that how it goes for women and families in a community determines how it goes for the community at large.
We value and have as our guiding principles the ideals of diversity, creativity, balance, collaboration, kindness & compassion and sustainability & environmental preservation that challenge greed, exploitation & domination.
As an online media presence since 2005, SheVille has experienced tremendous growth over the years by listening to what readers want to know about and want to offer. We value the distinctive character of Western North Carolina people and locally owned businesses. Through SheVille’s unique media platform we have opportunity to vision and help create a local community that works toward equity, diversity and sustainability and prides itself in KEEPING ASHEVILLE WEIRD!
By supporting local business we also create and maintain jobs that keep revenue right here at home – revenue that provides regional, social and economic stability throughout WNC. (Purchase a GO LOCAL Card today !)
SheVille’s Commitment to our Local Community:
Our commitment is to provide information that energizes a vision of a better world—a world of inclusion, equality, kindness, generosity, and support for good ideas, good intention and good work. We are open to new ideas that contribute to this and we encourage you to share your ideas with us; those dreams that move all of us to become better at what we do and who we are and want to be.
In order to keep SheVille up to date we need sponsorships through advertising, donations, grants (hard to find), and we also ask you to spread the word by introducing people to the magazine by sending links to anyone who might be interested. If you like what you read and want to participate in SheVille in any way please let us know. You can contribute ideas and support through advertising with us, asking your friends to advertise with us or by sponsoring a special interest page. Monies are spent for research, marketing, yearly system upgrades and ongoing technical management.

SheVille Focus Group:
Our focus/advisory group members provide us with their content ideas, suggestions and requests for content. The SheVille focus group is what we like to call “liquid and informal”…got it? Members are people who have knowledge/experience in these areas: Women & Children Education, Wage Equity & Employment, Reproductive Health, Maternal Health, Gender-based Violence, Racial & Gender Equality, the Environment/Climate/Sustainability.
We assess where we’re going and what changes and new ideas need to be implemented. The task, of course, is limitless and that’s what makes it fun.
If you have an interest in being a part of a SheVille focus group or have other ideas to share, please write and let us know, we’re interested! email@example.com
