The weekend starts with the Kick-Off Business Networking and Empowerment Event "Fall Forward" with special guest speaker female business women Olivia McCheyne. Olivia is the Founder and Executive Director of Fall Forward, Inc., a prison outreach and reentry organization serving incarcerated and recently released individuals throughout New York State. Olivia was a formerly incarcerated woman who is know in the middle of gaining a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies! If there was ever a woman who has "risen" through adversity to inspire other women with her story it is Olivia.

Also speaking is Stacey Murphy of Murphy Grant Consulting from Ithaca who is also a creative writer. In 2017, she created and co-edited NY Votes for Women, A Suffrage Centennial Anthology, her first effort as editor. Her haiku appear in the 2016 anthology Wild Voices, and her poems are included in a number of online journals including the Painted Parrot and Hedgerow. She just joined the Cayuga Lake Books editorial board in early 2018 and is interested in helping women writers get their voices and hard work out into the world.

You'll also hear motivational words from the New Feminists for Justice co-founders along with a potential very special guest! The event includes food, drinks and empowerment. Any Women TIES member can attend and display/sell their products and services at tables around the room. Limited space handed out on a first come, first serve basis.

This empowering event will also introduce the Women's TIES "Pink Glasses Mission for 2018!"

We want you and any other females, young adult women, female college students or girls you know to be with us during this kick-off event.

We are looking for a couple sponsors for this specific event. Do you believe in empowering women? Do you want to market your company in the beginning of 2018? Contact the Women TIES Office at 315-708-4288 for more information.

Women TIES is launching its new Pink Glasses Mission to help inspire women to "See Pink. Buy Pink. Live Pink." We feel the pink glasses will help women look for and fix inequality facing women on a more regularly basis if they own a pair or wear a pair of our pink glasses.

What does "See Pink. Buy Pink. Live Pink." mean?

See Pink - Look for women's inequality in life and try to do something immediate about it.

Buy Pink - Buy from women first and foremost to help eradicate pay inequality.

Live Pink - Support women and girls programs and issues to help lift up women today and the generation of women to follow.

Women TIES Directory showcases women entrepreneurs or women in business who you can buy from or hire. Decide in 2018 to put your money in the hands, bank accounts or pocketbooks of women first and foremost to help eradicating pay inequality. Women will never earn as much as men if women don't start buying from them deliberately and often! This is what we call "Living the Women TIES Mission".

The pink glasses you order will be shipped to you within 7 days. The glasses do not have a prescription. They fit all sizes. They have womenties.com on the side arm. The cost includes the glasses and shipping in the USA.
