This past weekend we had the privilege of hosting the EmpowHer Salon at Sunset. Not only did our CEO Betty LaMarr get the opportunity to report on the state of EmpowHer, but we also got to celebrate our volunteers who have been such an essential part of our service to teen girls. Some of our girls from the EmpowHer Girls Academy as well as the EmpowHer Leaders Academy (ELA) got to speak about the impact that EmpowHer has made in their lives. Our theme was “Strengthening the Bridge to Opportunity,” which is exactly what our volunteers, mentors, teachers, and board members are doing by being a part of EmpowHer Institute. We recognized multiple individuals including Ruth Simeon, Board Chair, René Nourse, Advisory Board Member, and Linda Wright, ELA Mentor. We’re so thankful to have such amazing women in the EmpowHer family – their hard work does not go unnoticed! It is because of these volunteers as well as our donors that we are able to make the impact we are making in our schools. A special thank you to Co-Chairs, Mary Sadeghi and Joslyn Osborn! We also want to thank our Corporate Sponsor, VACO-LA.
