History

Theresa Menting, while working as the Volunteer Service Coordinator at the Fond du Lac County Department of Social Services, proposed the idea of a Women’s Empowerment Series, which was approved and launched in spring 2018 with the help of community donors and volunteers. Following its success, the program expanded in 2019, offering additional classes and introducing programs for children and teens. In 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the series transitioned to embraced a virtual format and expanded to year-round programming, continuing its mission of empowerment. By 2021, the program expanded further, prompting a name change to We EmpowHER to better reflect its diverse offerings. Finally, in April 2023, We EmpowHER became an independent 501(c)(3) organization with its own Board of Directors. Now, in 2024, We EmpowHER continues to serve the community through connection to resources, community building and year-round programming.
