“Motivation Mondays” is our social media campaign designed to help INSPIRE women through exposure to the actions of the shining stars who walk amongst us. In a society where women are oftentimes not recognized and praised for their hard work and accomplishments, our goal is to highlight those excelling in spite of, and to let all of our readers and followers know that you can do it, too!

Statistics have shown that women who have consistent role models are more likely to be successful. To MENTOR is to be willing to share one’s experiences with hope that it provides another with information that can be used for the betterment of self. Through a formal mentoring program, we would like to provide an atmosphere of loving guidance that helps to propel each of us forward.
