TOLEDO, April 6, 2019: Women of Toledo (WOT) and the American Association of University Women (AAUW) are hosting the 2019 Annual Women’s Empowerment Summit, Power for Progress, to serve and engage a diverse group of women in Greater Toledo for Saturday, April 6, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Park Inn by Radisson in Downtown Toledo.


Its theme this year, Power for Progress, acknowledges the progress made, recognizes what is yet to be accomplished, and finds purpose to keep moving forward by empowering others. The Summit will create awareness about and encourage support for the Equal Pay campaign.

The Summit features four main stage sessions with story labs on topics ranging from advocacy, economic sustainability, intersectional lives and social progress for global citizens. The different sessions will teach attendees how they can achieve their own success and reach a more equitable future.


Its feature program is A Talk Show: Breaking the Stigma, Period. Its host, Veralucia Mendoza of UT’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will interview Claire Coder, founder and CEO of Aunt Flow, and Nadya Okamoto, founder of PERIOD and author of Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement.


The organizers hope to attract intergenerational women who are seeking professional, personal, and economic growth and take advantage of resources that will help them tap into their own potential to empower others to Power for Progress.
