Part of SAF’s mission is to uplift and empower women around us. Last year we invited 2 entrepreneurs to give a motivation talk during our Annual Tea. The segment is called “She means business” Our friends loved the idea of promoting local businesses run by women so we have decided to make the segment permanent part of our Annual Tea.
We are seeking nominations for Women in leading roles within our community who have proven themselves as survivors and have inspired people around them in one form or the other. We want to hear from them at our 5th Annual Tea where they will be given a chance to tell their journey to encourage a room full of strong, determined and powerful women. These women can be entrepreneurs, community leaders or simply someone you feel has worked hard to achieve her goals and is a constant source of inspiration for other ladies
Here’s what you have to do:
Email your nomination to (Execboardsaf@yahoo.com) with a brief introduction of the person you are nominating and why you think this person is your choice
All nominations have to be turned in by March 15th
Assigned set of Board members will vote to choose 2 finalists who will be invited to speak at the event
Each finalist will be given 3-5 minutes to tell their story –the struggles and the achievements ...
