Empowerment Exchange: 9 Week Virtual Series

Women’s Empowerment is committed to empowering and supporting the women and children struggling in our community year-round, especially during times of crisis (not only our 12 week series). These empowering segments will address difficult situations which will help women in our community find hope and connections. We are taking a situation that would normally consume us with worry and turning it into a REAL conversation about REAL issues with REAL women! We need to stop worrying about WHAT we are going to do and start talking about HOW we are going to get through this. The answer is simple – together! Confidence through Community!

Join us each Thursday night at 7:00pm CST LIVE on our Women’s Empowerment Series facebook page! Videos will be posted on the website after each event. Every week local women will take over our Facebook Page by speaking on a topic that is important to them and moderating the page with inspiration and discussion throughout the rest of the week. Find the inspiration, empowerment and sisterhood in a community…well nation, that is hurting. Each week we will also be giving away an item donated by a community member or local business. For all of those who watch, comment and share you will be put in the drawing! Each winner will be posted on our facebook page the day after each talk.

Exciting announcement from our Executive Director, Theresa Menting!
