empowerMUSE

Why we started empowerMUSE:
Because every women is worthy of having dreams and pursuing them, but not every woman feels worthy OR knows how to get started OR has a support system currently in place.

Our Mission:
EmpowerMUSE enriches lives by inspiring women to take an active role in their own empowerment. We do this by engaging in public outreach and advocacy, storytelling, mentorship and resource connections.

Our Values:
We hold a safe space for women to work from the inside out.

We recognize each woman’s journey is her own; we are NOT here to judge.

We know the foundation of empowerment grows from within and there is strength in unity.

We do not endorse nor engage in any activity which would limit the rights of other women.

We do not offer advice; we relate to one another through personal experience and provide encouragement.

Empowerment means taking action; we offer women the opportunity to take an active role by participating in mentorship programs, engaging in public outreach and advocacy, and sharing their story.

We are committed to solution-driven accountability.

EmpowerMUSE's only ambition is to support women on their path to empowerment irrespective of circumstance(s); we are not affiliated with any political party and do not promote any personal agenda, otherwise.

We are an organization for women who are willing to keep an open mind and practice tolerance.

We welcome support from allies of women such as men, children, and community organizations in fulfilling empowerMUSE's initiatives.

Who we serve:
All women willing to take action.
We invite all women to participate regardless of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, financial status, physical appearance, personal style, or political affiliation.
