Get to know us.
It started as a conversation about the challenges we were going through in our various internships, and the dire need for support and guidance we felt we needed and could offer each other as we navigated through this important stage of our early careers.
This simple chat turned into a fully-fledged idea that saw us launch a female empowerment platform seeking to empower young African college ladies, like ourselves, into becoming tomorrow’s boss women. To date, we have worked with young women in helping them realise and maximise their full potential as they went on to launch their careers. From hosting monthly career-centred events to collaborating with female industry experts across Mauritius and holding a mini-conference, FemmePWR has grown into becoming a digital community for ambitious young women.
We still have a long way to go.
Across African countries, it is estimated that transition and completion rates of women from higher institutions and consequently entry rates into the job market remains shockingly low compared to that of men. FemmePWR seeks to work with such women into helping them prepare themselves better for the working world, and to successfully launch their careers. Through our efforts, we are optimistic and keen to see a generation of empowered African women ready with an ambition to confidently and successfully pursue their careers.
