Day of Empowerment encourages women to lead positive lives

In honor of Women's History Month the Simmons Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO) and the Class of 2012 hosted "A Day of Empowerment" featuring Sierra Bender, an expert in helping women find their voice. More than 120 women from Simmons and the Boston community gathered at Simmons College to learn how to take steps towards positive change.

"We were excited about bringing an event to Simmons that would have an impact on a large scale," says Vice President of CEO Blair Griffin '12. "Given the Simmons mission and the societal pressures on women, we all felt this event would be tremendously beneficial in reinforcing the power women hold and our ability to make a difference."

The day, which included yoga, discussions, and group work was an excellent way to wrap up Women's History Month and to reflect on the importance of women finding their personal voice.
