An excerpt from the article:

When you meet with as many women as I do on a daily basis, it’s inevitable that you’ll end up having a lot of the same conversations. There are so many shared experiences among women that when we get an opportunity to share, we quickly learn that we are definitely not the only ones.

I will often be the first person to admit that I never thought I’d be the founder of a non-profit, let alone one that focuses on supporting and empowering women. But as the years have passed since I hosted our first Let Her Speak event in 2018 - I’ve started to notice how all these pieces of my life were leading me exactly to where I am today.

The most accessed resource I have ever created–in both downloadable and podcast format–is called the 7 Tips for Calm. I created it in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. I remember being in my kitchen, shortly after the lockdowns began, observing how calm I felt in the midst of this “once in a lifetime” event. And then I thought “OH! I KNOW HOW TO DO THIS.”

THE FOUND PROJECT

Rest can look like a lot of different things. For this Women’s History Month project, we partnered with Ashley Gurley Photography and asked women in Knoxville to tell us why rest is important in their lives, what they do for rest, and how rest impacts their sense of self. We selected 12 women to feature and share how they rest and feel found.

Jaleria always enjoyed dancing and movement growing up and into adulthood, but didn’t have time to explore her passion for it until the pandemic hit. It was early in lockdown that her long “watch list” of dance videos finally became a part of her restful routine.

SHE SPEAKS SERIES

The She Speaks Series was a project we produced during the pandemic (2020 – 2021) as a way for women’s voices and stories of resilience to remain visible and inspire others to forge their own paths. Watch video interviews with some truly incredible women!
