Women's Empowerment Initiative at TCCC

Every woman who wants to change jobs, find a career, or just explore a new direction for her life, should take advantage of the “Women’s Empowerment Initiative.” This one-day event is offered by Tri-County Community College (TCCC) and is free to all women in Cherokee, Clay and Graham counties.

Held March 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Enloe Building, on the main TCCC campus in Peachtree, the day is packed with informative classes designed to “ …help ladies who feel stuck, who need information or help in creating and achieving goals for themselves,” said Kelly Hembree, Coordinator of Career Services and Human Resource Development at TCCC.


“The goal of the event is to establish unity and connections within the group, and to provide much needed information about available resources, financial aid, programs of study, and employability skills,” said Hembree.

Morning classes include Employability Skills and Self Promotion, Financial Awareness (with advice on saving and spending wisely), Stress Management, and Identifying Barriers. Following a free lunch, attendees will be treated to a series of guest speakers, all area women who have overcome their own struggles and are happy to share their experiences, successes, helpful tips, and short cuts.

There will be plenty of time for interactions with representatives from local businesses and community resource programs, and all attendees will be able to take advantage of free follow-up instruction in resume writing, interview techniques, job applications, and other tasks to help women realize their dreams.

If you are interested in participating in the Women’s Empowerment Initiative, or would like more information, please contact Kelly Hembree at (828) 835-4291 or khembree@tricountycc.edu prior to the event.
