Westborough – For years, the Center for Women and Enterprise’s (CWE) Central Mass. office, based in Worcester, has helped hundreds of people jumpstart their careers. Now, with a move to a new Westborough location, the nonprofit hopes to expand its reach to serve more people beyond the city’s borders.

When their lease was up in Worcester, the organization decided a move to Westborough made sense for several reasons, according to the organization’s Central Mass. Program Manager Lori Allen. The Worcester location was not compliant with the American with Disabilities Act and parking was an issue at times.
