Women’s Circle Meet and Greet a success!
Posted by sebastianbrown on June 7, 2011
On May 10 the Long Branch Women’s Sewing circle held a meet and greet with associated partner organizations to formally kick off their three month program of sewing and entrepreneurial training. In attendance were staff and board members from Empowered Women International,–a local non-proft that concentrates on assisting female immigrant artisans with starting their own business–IMPACT staff, Bruce Baker–representing the Takoma Foundation– and the women themselves. In addition to celebrating the women’s accomplishments thus far and cheering them on as they begin this next step, we had a lively conversation around how the partners can collaborate in efforts to support these women as they move toward full economic empowerment.
