IEEW to host fashion show for empowerment of women
Jul '13
The Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women , a nonprofit organization that encourages women's leadership and entrepreneurship through education and mentoring initiatives, has announced that the fourth annual PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS fashion show, "Jewel: Economic Empowerment of Women," will be held on Tuesday, July 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 5810 N. Classen Blvd., Suite 1. Eden Salon and Spa will co-host the event with Liberte, an exclusive women's boutique specializing in versatile, business chic fashions and accessories.

The show will feature a display of the latest trends in clothing and accessories and include a blind auction, 20 percent of all purchases will directly benefit IEEW. Several Afghan and Rwandan women entrepreneurs from this year's graduating class of PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS students will be in attendance to celebrate a night of culture and style while highlighting the importance of women empowerment around the globe.

This event is one of several occurring during IEEW's PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS Mentorship Week. PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS is a business training and mentorship program for women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda established by IEEW CEO and founder Dr. Terry Neese.

Through in-country education, leadership development and mentorship training, the women acquire the necessary skills to succeed in their business communities and foster a strong public policy agenda in their home countries.

As the women spend a week with their mentors, they are able to connect on a personal and business level as they gain a hands-on experience to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership skills. This year's class will graduate from PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas on Tuesday, July 30, following months of study and hands-on experience.
