Her Power! is currently accepting applications for a five-month leadership program for women with disabilities ages 20 – 35 interested in serving on board of directors of a nonprofit organization.
There are many ways to share your knowledge and take on leadership roles in our community. One way is to serve on a board. This leadership program is for women with disabilities ages 20- 35 who want to serve on a board. This program is aimed at women who have not served on a board before. Applications will be accepted from individuals that have served on a board in the past or are currently on a board but feel lost in the process or feel like their voice isn’t currently being heard. For more information visit our Women Program Page.

This interactive workshop is designed for transracial adoptive families and members of their communities (family, friends, neighbors, church community & coworker).

PAST EVENT: Teen Girls and Assistive Technology
August 9th, 2021
3:00- 5:00 pm (EST)
We will be talking about assistive technology girls can use in their lives for things they may not want to talk to others about. This will include everything from ways to handle your period to putting on your bra to painting your nails. There’s no shame in asking how others get things done.
