Welcome to EmpowHERment! You may recognize us from the 2019 Women's Career Institute at Parkland College, but we're back in a whole new way!


Our mission is to empower women, women-identified individuals, and their allies, to take the next step in their careers. Founded by Parkland College and the YWCA, we’re here to provide an empowering space where you can find online support, learning, and networking opportunities for women seeking to advance their careers. We encourage asking questions, sharing challenges and triumphs, and helping others with valuable resources. We look forward to helping empower your (personal and) professional growth!
