What we're about
Our Empowered S(h)elves
Countless perspectives on the position of women in society are presented to us through news outlets, social media, TV, movies and magazines. Thousands more are posed as subliminal messages through popular ad and media imagery that may unconsciously define the way we see ourselves. We’ve come a long way along the continuum of female empowerment, however there are barriers growing stronger than ever that prevent women from being powerful, equal leaders in society.
There has never been a better time to re-build our bookshelves with thoughtful pieces about how female placement in the world is changing – and to share our learnings with our peers to encourage and empower our elevation to new heights… growing our Empowered S(h)elves. We will read and share reflections on pieces from authors current and past – including Lena Dunham, Maya Angelou, Sheryl Sandberg and more.
This group will resume meetings in August 2017.
