EmpowHerNY is a collaborative platform created to share stories and give a voice to real women who are determined to achieve their goals, despite any challenges they face.
The idea of the project is to create a safe environment for all women to discuss their experiences, difficulties, and achievements without judgment, while always encouraging sorority and dialogue.
Through our instagram profile @EmpowHer_NY, we introduce the life and routine of different EmpowHerNY Women. Our daily "Takeovers" give women the creative freedom to share their day-to-day journey.
we hold three annual events where we move our efforts from the digital to the real world. Curated by the Founders of the movement, we invite inspiring women to tell their story using our platform to discuss anything from self love and health, to career goals and entrepreneurship.
We believe in a world where women support and learn from one another. The mission of this movement is to inspire others to embrace their uniqueness and expand our perspectives. Get ready to conquer your dreams…
together and empowered!
