Recognizing that women face unique barriers to professional success, EmpowHer launched Women in the Workplace which is our premier program for Female Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Executives. The workshop series focuses on resolving the challenges women & young girls face in the workplace and share ideas on how to best support career development.
Women in the Workplace has proven to be an invaluable channel to exchange ideas with women at all career levels along with industry expert leaders and members of the communities in which we live and work.

What We Provide:
Given the dramatic growth of women’s incarceration in recent years, it’s concerning how little attention and how few resources have been directed to meeting the reentry needs of justice-involved women. After all, we know that women have different pathways to incarceration than men, and distinct needs, including the treatment of past trauma and substance use disorders, and more broadly, escaping poverty and meeting the needs of their children and families. In recognition of these differences, and in an effort to reduce the harms of incarceration and the likelihood of re-incarceration, many prison systems have begun to implement gender-responsive policies and programs. But what’s being done to help women get the support they need to rebuild their lives after release?
Empowher partners with several service providers —— to offer wraparound services including transitional housing, case management, (list other partner organizations) to support women as they navigate reentry. Staff support women from initial reentry tasks like obtaining ID cards and applying for public assistance all the way through the process of regaining custody of children and finding permanent housing.
Empowher’s vision is to have a life-changing impact on the women we serve that will create a ripple effect in their families and the greater community. They learn the skills needed for independent living and obtain the resources to shed the behaviors that led to their incarceration. Our program’s objective is to reduce the recidivism rates for women in (county) and contributes to public safety.
