EmpowHer Champions

Our EmpowHer Champions are an elite group of individuals who are dedicated to empowering more girls and women with disabilities. EmpowHer Champions come from all over the country and have many different backgrounds, from students to professionals to activists and everything in between. However, our EmpowHer Champions all have one thing in common: they believe in our mission of helping disabled girls and women to grow, learn, and develop to their highest potential and have the confidence to lead.
