Review for Creating Economic Opportunities for Women Inc, Oakland, CA, USA
I love volunteering with this group because the women who participate come from such diverse backgrounds and I learn so much about so many different cultures. As a volunteer in the initial sessions, it's pretty neat to see the instructors work their magic and make all the women feel comfortable in an uncomfortable setting. They do a wonderful job of promoting classroom interaction, having open discussions about common issues that each of the women face. It's amazing how much warmer the room feels after that initial day and the women show a willingness to interact more.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Being invited back as a guest speaker for a workshop that they conducted. Financial literacy is an area that the organization focuses on and they do all they can to connect their women with professionals in the community.
