Wilmington is a tax free, pet friendly, environmentally conscious city, but a little known fact about this Delaware gem is it’s also a key city for female empowerment promotion. Live, Work, Play Wilmington, Delaware women can tap into their inner feminist via a multitude of platforms that are practically stationed in their own backyard. Here are some feature female presentations scheduled to take over the world… or at least Delaware this spring.
#1: The 2014 YWCA Delaware Archive Academy of Women Leaders
The YWCA of Delaware would like to honor the groundbreaking women of Delaware with trailblazing awards. The awards luncheon is scheduled to take place on April 30th and there are five categories of nomination. These awards are for everyday heroes who are active in the community as well as on the home front. If you or someone you know is a certified trailblazer, a racial justice advocate, a young female leader, or the community activist, you can cast a vote for them on the YWCA Delaware website and invite them to join you at the DuPont Hotel for lunch and a possible trophy. The YWCA Delaware holds powerful empowerment meetings all year round with a focus on finance, family and education.
#2: Women Who Dare to Dream
The Delaware Church is holding a Wilmington Riverfront event on March 30th entitled “Women Who Dare to Dream”.
