Highlights from #EquipHer18
Thanks to our Amazing Village of Partners, Donors, Supporters, Volunteers, and of course our BAWSEOME Panelist/Guest Speakers, our 2nd Annual Women Empowerment Conference #EquipHer18 was nothing short of Magical! We couldn't not have been blessed with a venue more suitable than The Riveter! Our partnership with Dress For Success-Seattle was right on! The models (pictured left with BAWSE lady Tika Smith) looked dapper in their Interview ready looks. Faces beat by the best Make Up Artists in the industry for that extra boost of Confidence, thanks to our partners at Sephora. Our queens were served mouth watery appetizers and refreshments from our sponsors at Starbucks, followed by a scrumptious meal, courtesy of our sponsors at Thai On 1 Seattle. They all left fully equipped with tips from our BAWSEASS Speakers, and goodie bags from Sephora. Our hearts are full! We love our village! Last but most certainly not least, special thanks to our sponsors at Hello Fresh, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, John Howie Steakhouse, Seastar Restaurant, and Patrick Tak Photography!

Just the boost you need as you prepare for the workforce.
BAWSE (Brilliantly.Awesome.Women.Support.Eachother) is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization that was founded in 2017 by Tika Smith, a single mother of four children. She quickly formed a group of volunteers, whom she refers to as her tribe. "It takes a village..." Together, the tribe host dinners at local shelters, as well as birthday and holiday celebrations, among many other events for homeless women and children. What great joy it brings us to see their beautiful faces light up. Our ultimate goal is to have a Transitional Housing for homeless women and children.

"Life has thrown me many curve balls, but it was Faith, Community and a Tribe of positive women that kept me going. I want to give that same support that was given me, to any woman that has lost hope."
