Kay Mitchell is the founder and driving force of the Women’s Empowerment Brunch. This monthly brunch is held at 10:30 am on the fourth Saturday of each month April through October.
With the motto “Come be inspired and uplifted as we, as women, come together in unity,” each brunch features a different speaker. According to Mitchell the brunch “is an opportunity for like-minded women to come together, network, fellowship, learn about what’s going on in the community and get plugged in.” Additionally, “the brunch is all about making connections, exploring your passions, and helping you get to the next level.”
The March 26th brunch featured Dr. Sandra Winborne, Ph.D., CEO at Winnie & Associates, LLC. Winborne specializes in consulting for employment credentialing and the application of multiple intelligences. Her motto, “Transition happens even if you’re not prepared” is a reminder to all that she is available to support her clients and make sure they are prepared for their next steps. Winborne says, “I want to help you with how, monetarily, you can live well moving forward while looking at how your career suits you.” She also shared stories of women she has met in her journey and how they encouraged her and taught her different life skills.
After the presentation, Mitchell issued a monthly challenge to all attendees, “Do at least one thing every day that makes you happy. Don’t just give of yourself to others, give back to yourself.”
At the close of the brunch, Mitchell shared their new location at the Shepreneur Clubhouse, 945 W. Michigan Ave, Suite 6C. If you’re interested in the Women’s Empowerment Brunch, please see their Facebook page for additional information.
