Young & Empowered Women plan to mentor, motivate Valley professionals

Posted

A diverse organization to connect and empower emerging female leaders from various sectors, which began at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, has become the Valley’s newest 501(c)3 nonprofit.

Young & Empowered Women formed  in June 2021, to mentor, unite and encourage women to achieve personal and professional goals. Since the group officially formed, Y&E has empowered nearly 100 members with the skills, resources and networks needed to develop and enhance their personal and professional trajectory, according to a press release.

“Systematic inequities for women still exist and they limit opportunities for success, which is why I am so honored and proud of the work we have done as an organization to bring together and empower rising leaders,” said Veronica Aguilar, Y&E founder, in the release.

In its fourth cohort, in addition to hosting monthly professional development seminars, the release said Y&E holds a two-day women’s leadership retreat offering sessions in financial planning, bridging the gender gap, career growth and more.

The nonprofit has been recognized at Arizona State University’s Venture Devils and recently received a grant from The Jack Ingebritson Foundation, the release noted.

Benefits for members include access to a one-on-one mentor, personalized soft and technical skill development, networking, individual career assessments and service opportunities.

The commitment to join Y&E is $85 per year, with tuition scholarships available. Y&E recognizes strength in diversity of members and encourages membership participation from various sectors.

Young & Empowered Women developed its values in 2020, when networking and career coaching were redefined. In the past two years, members have expanded their networks, been introduced to female leaders and received personal skill development and coaching.

Young professionals interested in joining Y&E can email youngandempoweredwomen@gmail.com.
