Step Up Women's Network

Step Up Women's Network

It feels like forever ago but it was only last week when I attended the Orange County launch of the Step Up Women’s Network. I found out about it from fellow OC mama Liz of Origin One who I “met” virtually on the Savor the Success site. Let me tell you that it was such an awesome gathering of women — and all for a good cause.

I tweeted that Step Up rocked and of course, people were curious so…

From its literature, one learns that: “Step Up is a national nonprofit membership organization dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. With chapters in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, Step Up has more than 50,000 supporters nationwide. Through teen empowerment programs for underserved girls, women’s health education and advocacy, professional mentorship, and social networking opportunities, we educate and activate our members to ensure that women and girls have the tools they need to create a better future.”

Cool, right?

There was such a cool vibe at Scott’s that night. One attendee said it felt like being in a sorority. And while I’ve never been part of one, I did go to a private girls’ school from elementary to high school — so I totally get how empowering it is to be surrounded by fellow goddesses.

Take Action now. Join this awesome national network of women dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. Talk about TRUE GIRL POWER!
