Women Empowered (WE) is incredible, vibrant, and thriving! Shelly started the group as a simple get-together but she has developed it into a solid non-profit that truly adds value to the lives of its members, volunteers, mentees, and anyone who gets involved in any way. I have known about this group for about 3 months, and already have a mentee, an inspiring network of women, a solid sense of women's success, and tons of outlets for giving back to the community. This is a dynamic group of women- all ages, backgrounds, economic status, careers, etc. I love it! The group is personable, engaging, and very interested in seeing women grow and develop professionally, personally, and socially. WE hosts entrepreneurship events, mentor/mentee events, fundraising events, health and fitness events, and a book club! All great things rolled into one group. I am so glad I met Shelly and am now an official WE member. Thank you

A year ago I became involved with Women Empowered. I realized right away I was in the presence of warm and welcoming like-minded women. Every time I left an event or volunteer day, I felt like I had not only made a difference, but made friends too! There's always something new to do or something going on. The volunteer days are overwhelming and powerful but also feel so accessible and comfortable. Women Empowered has helped me contribute to my community while also introducing me to an amazing group of women who I am able to now call friends!

Two years ago I began volunteering with Women Empowered. I fell in love with the organization because of the volunteer opportunities it offers as well as the path to connecting with amazing women. As part of their mentoring program, I was able to meet and mentor two great high school girls who have now moved on to college. I've also been able to meet women from various walks of life who have shared their stories and found that our commonality is to help and empower each other. Two years later, I am part of the board and as a board member my mission is to get women involved in the community and to encourage support for each other.

Crown Jewel Club shares Women Empowered's dedication to improving the lives of women and girls. We believe you need to start building self-esteem in girls at an early age, and the reminders of GREAT women are continue throughout their lives! The mentoring involved in this organization is a great start to shape lives. Women Empowered is a wonderful organization, and we hope to partner with them again in the near future!

Shades of Color, LLC is a proud donor to Women Empowered. Our motto is to uplift & inspire, and Women Empowered does just that. We have given in-kind calendars to the organization's gift bags and most recently Easter baskets for the Girls Today Women Tomorrow mentoring day. Women Empowered is the very type of organization that makes giving easy because we know that they in return will give 10 fold. It is a pleasure to see the group grow, and we will continue to support in any way we can. Congratulations, Women Empowered, and continue to be a great success!

I am continually impressed with the growth and impact of Women Empowered. WE is an organization that connects, educates and supports women of all ages and backgrounds, and inspires them to give back to their communities through mentorship, networking and volunteerism. It is built on a passion to inspire all women, and even in its infancy it has touched hundreds of members throughout Greater Los Angeles. In addition to its members, it has a positive impact on the girls and women WE donates time towards. I admire how WE grounds women looking to build relationships, fosters women looking to further themselves, and encourages women through the strength of paying it forward. Each event I meet at least a handful of new women and everyone is friendly, non-judgemental and simply looking to be involved. My favorite aspect of WE is seeing the lives that are effected, and I am so excited about the future of this organization! The direction the organization is headed is simply… empowering.

Women Empowered is a great organization currently based in Greater Los Angeles. The two-fold focus makes it an ideal group to maximize your personal and professional development. First, it offers opportunities for volunteerism including mentoring relationships with younger girls and other activities to get involved in the community. Second, it provides workshops and activities to expand your own growth, be it related to health, esteem, entrepreneurship, finances etc. I feel the group has a lot to offer and the networking with such a warm hearted group of women is tremendous. I look forward to seeing what other opportunities lay ahead as the organization grows!!

My company, Kai Expressions Jewelry, partners with Women Empowered occasionally throughout the year. We lead two annual jewelry making workshops at the Downtown Women's Center and with Girls Today Women Tomorrow, WE's community partner organizations. Each time the attendees are overwhelmed not only that a group of women are taking time out for them, but that they can tap into their inner creativity and leave with beautiful jewelry they would not normally have access to. It is extremely rewarding, and I thank the ladies of Women Empowered for creating such an environment.

We look forward to partnering with WE again at the "WE Connect: Professional Networking Mixer" in Santa Monica on May 23rd, and will continue to donate to the annual fundraiser in November, "A Night of Empowerment." This is a great organization to get involved with - in any capacity!!.

Our company recently learned about Women Empowered last year and were excited to work with them towards their wonderful mission. For their first annual Cocktail Fundraiser we donated a pair of handcrafted earrings to their silent auction. This year we also participated in a jewelry workshop that WE hosted for members of the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles. We look forward to partnering with this organization again in the near future -- hats off to them for creating a great opportunity!

Women Empowered gives women a chance to live well-rounded lives. Women are able to meet, socialize, and bond with other like-minded women, volunteer for incredible philanthropic events, and boost their self-confidence.

I was first introduced to WE through very dear friends of mine. Although I grew up in the Los Angeles area, I found it was hard to meet people, let alone those with similar interests and values. WE has introduced me some wonderful women and brought the philanthropic aspect into my life that I always thought about doing. In such a short amount of time, WE has amazingly grown with the help, dedication, and love of its founder and members. Unfortunately, my schedule does not allow me to give too much to WE, but that will be changing soon and I am very much looking forward to being able to give much more to such an inspiring organization.

Women Empowered has been such a special gift to me. Thank you so much Shelly for sharing your vision. I am finally developing solid, quality relationships with women from all walks of life who share similar goals. I am certain it is because of WE that I have had such a shift in my frame of mind. They offer so many empowering and inspiring programs and events. I always leave this group of women feeling refreshed, hopeful, accepted, loved and inspired!
