Women's Empowerment Organization to Attend International Women of Courage Awards in DC

Dr. Terry NeeseInternational Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women Invited to Celebrate International Women’s Day with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton And First Lady Michelle Obama

“Make a difference, think globally and act locally.”

Founder and CEO of theInstitute for Economic Empowerment of Women, Dr. Terry Neese will be putting that advice into action on March 8th as she travels fromOklahoma to D.C to celebrate International Women’s Day with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama atthe State Department forthe International Woman of Courage luncheon.

The event takes place at The Dean Acheson Auditorium at The State Department at 11am EST. In addition totheluncheon, Dr. Neese will also be attendingtheawards ceremony honoring women from aroundtheworld fortheir commitment to human rights and dignity, attherisk oftheir own life. This event will take place at The National Press club at 6p EST that same evening.

Says Dr. Neese, “Whilethecelebration is in place,thework is not over.  On this international day of honoring women, we should reflect ontheunity and strength women symbolize and pay forwardtheknowledge of those who have gone before us.  I look forward to hearing Secretary Clinton and Mrs. Obama’s vision for women in 2012 and beyond”.

International Women’s Day honors groundbreaking women, connects females globally and inspires futures.  It acknowledgesthechallenges women have overcome, inspires women to further achievements and reminds us of goals we as women are still working towards.

Here is how an American businesswoman can extend a local hand to globally empower women:

  • Attend our International Woman’s Economic Summit and 2012 PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS ® program graduation in D.C this July, 2012. (Learn more at our website www.ieew.org).
  • Mentor a young girl demonstrating it is possible for women to hold positions of leadership.
  • Place a strong, female leader in a management position. 
  • Urge women entrepreneurs to become more involved with local politics. This idea falls in line with the philosophy of Dr. Neese who says, “If you run a small business and you are not involved in politics,then politics will run your business.”
