GLOBAL CONNECTIONS MADE IN THE NAME OF THE GODDESS ARTEMIS
October 17, 2017
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Is…
WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN.
Artemis remains one of Greece’s most celebrated goddesses: she was Appolo’s twin and equal, a huntress, and the protector of young girls. So it makes sense that the European American Women’s Council (EAWC) headed by Loula Alafoyiannis would name their annual award for women in her honor. I was thrilled to be one of many global trailblazers selected to receive this year’s award. Read more about the awards and the beautiful Greek backdrops we were lucky enough to see in the festivities: click here.
I traveled abroad thanks to the EAWC and Loula along with friend and IEEW volunteer Pat Carr and fellow Oklahoman award winner Victoria Woods (ChappellWood Financial, CEO). It was an unforgettable trip to Greece, a place dear to my heart for many years. Having the opportunity to join up with other global entrepreneurs is the beating heart of the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS(r) program. The spark made in the conversations held on these trips abroad may hold the potential to take our program to the next level. We are always looking for ways to build the road to peace into new lands and link our hand with a diverse group of women. Women together are unstoppable: I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again and again until gender equality has been reached.
We need your help to train more global entrepreneurs. We rely 100% on private donations.
