About Society Of Pageant Women LLC
Society of Pageant Women exists for women to find a place to connect, not just compete. This platform was founded in February of 2019 by Charity Cramer, because she wanted to amplify the voices of titleholders and directors who want to promote positive pageantry and those who are willing to build themselves as leaders to improve this industry. As a former competitor, Charity knows what it feels like to be unheard inside and outside of the pageant industry. She was motivated to build a network of confidently diverse women.
Our founder Charity Cramer has all of the tools you need for success in life, business, and pageantry. Charity Cramer, “Queen C”, graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems (MIS) with a Operations Management concentration. As a college student she started CelebMi, an affordable jewelry company specifically for pageant women while mentoring E-Commerce platform entrepreneurs to grow their businesses to over six figures in a year. She is an experienced small business consultant, business systems analyst, independent website developer and course creator. With over 5 years of experience in corporate America within credit risk, marketing and business intelligence, Charity was able to apply the knowledge learned from her MIS degree.
Throughout her over 8 years competing in pageantry, Charity Cramer noticed the industry lacked an ethical organization that empowered women before and after their reign outside of competition. Society of Pageant Women LLC is an Ethics based professional networking organization designed for pageant women and women who could use the confidence building tactics that are learned in pageantry for personal and professional success.
Outside of the business realm, Charity has an extensive background in the performing arts. Charity went to an arts school for seven years studying musical theater, dance and vocal. She learned to sing songs in over 8 languages and perform and produced shows with over 1,000 people in attendance for each. During her performance career, she had the opportunity to model for magazine cover pages, perform in plays like HairSpray, Cats, The Producers, Little Women and in NY had the opportunity to audition for off-Broadway musicals like “In The Heights”.
Charity was first introduced to pageantry, through her life-long love for performing arts, and ended up gaining four titles in Miss America, and making top five in Miss Delaware USA three times. She has also been a mentor to over 200 girls and women within pageantry. Charity has always and will always believe in the empowerment and equipment of women for success, and will not stop until all women have a voice and platform to use their gifts and talents to impact the world.
After SOPW was founded in February 2019, Charity quickly noticed how many women were flocking to SOPW as a platform for community and essential tools for success. SOPW currently has 38 members and 5 chapters across the United States. By 2021 we believe we can reach our goal of having a chapter in each state with at least 10 members in each chapter. That’s 500 members! We want you to be one of them!
