Women Offering Women Support (WOWS)
In 2018, Mayor Jim Strickland and the City of Memphis Administration decided women in the Greater Memphis Area deserved a program to help build character, improve communication, and strengthen leadership skills for women. In pursuit of that objective, Women Offering Women Support (WOWS) was created, formed and implemented by The Office of Community Affairs. WOWS is a six-session program delivered by community partners in a workshop setting.
This is a six-session program and the course topics are:
- Purpose of Women Offering Women Support
- Police & Community Relations
- Applications/Resume Completion
- Effective Communication
- Preparing for Interviews/Dress for Success/Mock Interviews
- Learning the Rules of the Game/Credit-Financial Literacy
The expectation of WOWS is to encourage, empower and employ the women in Memphis to reach their highest potential.
