Equal and Empowered is an organization committed to promoting equality for all through education of the individual person so that they may become more conscientious members of society, and promote and participate in creating positive change.
Currently our focus will be on the issues that women face, such as the wage gap, domestic violence, discrimination, and confidence in identity.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS
Equal and Empowered was founded by six passionate women, all students from Grandview Preparatory School located in Boca Raton, Florida. All the founders are determined to make a difference in the way marginalized groups are treated in society. Each member of the group has had experiences concerning inequality and discrimination based on gender and background, therefore, a focal point of our group is to touch on women’s rights and issues through education and awareness.
