Women Veterans Find Your Voice: Unleash Your Spirit to Soar!
Student Center 200A
- Mrs. Lisa Dent, Executive Director, Women Empowerment Inc.
Every woman deserves and is entitled to be heard, respected and valued. Unfortunately, these fundamental rights, across the global landscape aren’t practiced 100%. It’s time to change the dialogue and increase our actions. Even today, our women veterans struggle to be acknowledged recognized and treated with respect both in the military and when they return home to civilian life.
The time is now…Are you really ready to UNLEASH YOUR SPIRIT IN ORDER TO SOAR?! This workshop will help women veterans find their Voice, realized their purpose in life, and go for their dreams. Let’s start preparing for the PATH that’s designed only for you. Our (you are not alone) journey will begin with walking through the 5 Principles of Empowerment for Grown Women. We will explore the different moralities that continually hold women “in a box” like FEAR and practical ways to stop cycle.
This workshop also includes transformational activities, so be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. All we ask is that you bring your authentic self, no judgement and be open to the process. This is your chance to get out of “your box” and SOAR!
Every woman and girl have a VOICE. We help them Find it, Embrace it & Amplify it…with CONFIDENCE!
