As part of the Opening Plenary session at Service Unites 2018, we are focusing on women’s empowerment – and specifically how women can empower women. We will frame the discussion around what an empowering sisterhood looks like with living, breathing examples of the simple things we all can do to help another woman, another girl, in our life.
What are we asking YOU to do? Answer this question on video:
What is the best piece of advice you were ever given from another woman?
From bold-faced names to women we recognize from our local communities as mothers, sisters, entrepreneurs, caretakers and friends, we are inviting women from all walks of life to share the advice that empowered them to seek education, become financially independent, choose a bold lip color, speak their mind, run for office, value a woman’s friendship, etc. How did another woman’s guidance, wise words, enlightening insight – empower you?
