Powerful Women International, Houston-Connection
Powerful Women International is headquartered in San Francisco, California and was started by Valeri Bocage, a native of New Orleans who lost it all in Katrina except her indomnitable spirit. Valeri started a form of PWI as Positive Women in New Orleans, but when she took her dream of helping other women achieve their dreams despite any circumstance with her to San Francisco and Powerful Women International was launched. It began as a project in the Self Expression and Leadership program she was taking through Landmark Education. After the 6 month program, people wanted to help to make PWI an international reality.
Today PWI has "Connection" chapters in Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Albany, NY; Raleigh, North Carolina; Nairobi, Kenya; and Paris, France. New Connections are forming in New Zealand, NOrth Dakota and they just keep coming as word spreads about PWI's mission.
Our tagline is "Empowering Women to Empower the World." We believe that when women are connected to their passion and purpose, new possibilities open up and when a woman is on her path to achieving her dreams, the world will be a better place.
The Houston Connection was kicked off in the summer of 2007 with our first event. We have empowerment and networking events once a month to inspire, learn, share and connect powerfully to help each other in our businesses and our dreams.
