In this forum, participants explore the steps to creating a unique sense of identity and making self-empowering choices. Women and girls leave the session with an improved ability to recognize unrealistic body images. The new recognition creates the opportunity for increased self worth and self value.
This forum is geared towards girls and young women who would benefit from developing their self-esteem and confidence, have been victims of bullying, are recovering from an eating disorder or simply aspire to be a leader in their community.
Opportunities are all around us
Today, women have more opportunities than ever before. Yet current educational systems and societal criterion often prevent us from being able to readily identify and powerfully capitalise on those opportunities. Experienced as a keynote or workshop, participants are given tools to identify, seize and create opportunities for advancement and accessing our personal power.
Difference is power
"I believe that the 21st century is the century of the multi facetted woman, she is empowered, fun, warm, decisive, action driven and a builder of communities. She is a mother, daughter, sister as well as an innovator, professional or business leader. This is the century when we reach our full potential and make the world a more abundant place." - Yomi Abiola
Through de-mystifying media industry secrets and perpetuated stereotypes, this workshop supports participants in regaining confidence in themselves and their individuality. Participants are shown how to create, see and experience their unique difference as power.
