Building Momentum:

The CUNY Community College Women’s Empowerment Summit for Individual and Social Change

Saturday, May 6, 2017 Guttman Community College

Building Momentum: The CUNY Community College Women’s Empowerment Summit for Individual and Social Change, is a one-day FREE event geared towards enhancing the personal and professional development of young women in community colleges across the Tri-State Area.

Our goal is to provide opportunities for students to enhance their professional and personal skills and to become leaders on their campuses and within their communities. Our theme of empowerment, specific to community college women, includes interactive sessions on setting clear goals, maintaining motivation and building on momentum, and managing external demands. We hope that all participants will leave with a sense of empowerment and a renewed ownership of their destinies.
