On Sunday, March 18, 2018, we hosted our 11th Moving with Success Empowerment Brunch honoring Powerful Women of Purpose in STEM at the beautiful Motor City Casino Hotel SoundBoard. This inspiring day featured a delicious brunch, youth performances, and inspiring awards ceremony and panel discussion and an exciting live art auction!
Our 18 honorees represented all areas of the STEM fields. After being presented with an award from an RWF teen, each honoree gave brief remarks were both encouraging and inspiring. The panel discussions “Conversations with Powerful Women of Purpose” moderated by Rhonda Walker gave supporters and teens alike more insight into what it means to be a woman in the STEM fields; how to meet challenges head on; why giving back is important and to stay focused on goals.
The event ended with an exciting live art auction featuring eight paintings created by RWF Teens under the direction of world renown artist, Tony Roko and his newly formed Art Foundation. The auction raised over $3000 for the RWF Scholarship Fund.
A special thank you to all of our outstanding volunteers and Rashida The Glam Doctor and her team for giving our teens the Glam Squad experience in preparation for the day.
