Why This Woman’s Work?
Our vision for women everywhere,
starting with one girl at a time.
We envision a community where women and girls are empowered by access to career opportunities, programs, and long-lasting relationships.
One girl at a time. Wiping one tear at a time. We offer one smile at a time. We help girls change their lives by simply being there and being consistent. We teach our girls the skill sets needed to make educated and empowered decisions.
We teach them to protect themselves, speak up for themselves and others. We teach them to be unafraid, unapologetic, and unashamed. Our girls leave our programming with a boldness to step out into the world and own the life they desire.
Carla’s Closet, IronWomen Mentor (Iron Sharpens Iron), The Sowing Circle and Stepping into Strength (SIS) Mentoring Program are all programs designed to embody strength, empower women and girls, enhance existing talents and enriching the lives of the women our programs touch.
Our values are simple:
change a girl, change a community.
We help our girls identify their gifts, personal goals, and talents by
providing consistent access to mentorship, positive experiences, and resources.
This Woman’s Work teaches women and girls the following:
Why are we fighting for our girls; your daughters?
we believe in you.
We believe there are two steps which are essential for a
woman to build a rewarding career and become self-sufficient.
Step one in a woman’s journey to economic independence is preparing herself to become employable. Our programs promote confidence and professionalism by providing women tools to find employment.
Step two is remaining employed. TWW offers women ongoing support as they successfully transition into the workforce, build thriving careers and prosper in the mainstream workplace.
We are committed to treating women with respect and dignity to help them reach their fullest potential. Our philosophical roots are grounded in the belief women’s psychological and economic well-being positively influences the community as a whole. We recognize women taking responsibility to control their lives and behaviors affects the quality of life in the family, workplace and ripples out into the entire community.
