EngageHer is a national organization dedicated to educating and activating multicultural women and their communities about the most important issues they care about. Engage Her provides leadership training by conducting conferences, training workshops, and local meetings to Engage Her Circles. Combining the efficiency of the Internet with the need to meet in person, EngageHer enables and empowers multicultural women to take action on issues vital to themselves and their communities. Most importantly, EngageHer also connects women of all generations as well as of all colors and backgrounds to create a united force for change. The key issues that women have identified include: Health, Education, Economic, and Social Justice issues represent the key areas that affect women deeply daily. Women need to educate themselves on the issues, advocate for change, and participate in creating social change within our communities and our country. Engaging in petitions, voting for critical issues, and making our voices heard to our legislators and decision-makers is a critical factor in ensuring changes that affect our communities take place. We will accomplish these goals in several ways:
Educating & Training women on key issues: Providing articles and information about issues and solutions we should be aware of and support to improve the problems of our communities and across the nation.
EngageHer’s leadership training program addresses the unique barriers that multicultural women often face within their own families and cultures. National conferences featuring prominent multicultural women leaders and topic workshops offer opportunities to brainstorm sessions and connecting with other progressive attendees. One-day workshops provide strategies and skills for surmounting these barriers and are led by experienced, successful multicultural women leaders in business, politics, education, and other professional fields.
Social Media Training
EngageHer will offer one-day workshops throughout the country – in community colleges – on social media training. These workshops based on EngageHer’s successful sessions at its annual 2019 conference, where experts in social media tools led hands-on workshops for women who learned to use Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other media to communicate and create change. These workshops provide opportunities for the young to connect with older women.
Engage Her will conduct one-day workshops teaching communities on how to create their videos and how to distribute them online. Professionals will be recruited to teach these workshops. Engage Her will encourage women to participate in the new citizen advocacy arena by creating and distributing videos to their networks and communities.
EngageHer members will be asked to encourage their elected representatives to vote for legislation leading to improvements in health care for all Americans, whatever their level of income.
