About Empowerment


Empowerment is the process of acknowledging the hidden strength of others and assisting them to act purposefully and assertively to reach their growth potential. (Miller, 1994)

The Institute for Women's Empowerment, Inc. (IFWE) seeks to assist women in realizing their potential through the examination of current issues and themes that focus on empowerment and leadership development. Planned outcomes for women include: 
  • an increased understanding of the meaning of empowerment;
  • self-empowerment through group participation;
  • empowerment through educational processes; and
  • an awareness of the relationship between empowerment and personal behavior
IFWE strives to assist women through education and training, capacity building, and skills development. We offer interactive workshops designed to enhance each woman’s awareness about empowerment. We engage expert presenters who are skilled at designing and implementing workshops that include:  

  • Empowerment through Writing
  • Building Self-Esteem
  • Heal Your Life,  Heal Your Mind
  • Life Skills: Quality Control for Your Life
  • Managing Conflict
  • Effective Communication
  • Change Management
  • Stress Management
  • Positive Imagery
  • Financial Empowerment
  • Managing Relationships
  • The Balancing Act

Our primary focus is to equip women from diverse backgrounds wiht tools to empower
themselves through future programs that will support this effort.
