RISE UP: EMPOWERMENT
Our program is unique because it takes a gender specific approach to professional development. Not only will we give these women the skills they need to succeed, but we will prepare them to tackle the challenges of being a woman in the workplace. Also our guest speakers provide students with tangible examples of success, in the many different forms it takes. Topics touched upon mental health, the importance of self-care, why women are needed in finance and the power of young people
After completing our 6 week program, the students will be tasked with exploring the challenges facing their home communities and using the skills they've learned to develop a solution. They will present their solutions at our Annual Gala to an audience of friends, family, sponsors, and media.
