The San Antonio College Women’s Center is partnering with
several women executives from HEB Human Resources to hold a free “Women Helping
Women Prosper” event. It will be from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Koehler House on the SAC campus,
located at Ashby and Lewis.
A percentage of profits generated from vendor sales will be
donated to the Women Empowered (WE) Conference scholarships and to support teen
mothers at the Seton Home. Funds raised will go toward women
in our community to further their educational aspirations, to get a head start
with their career, or to help them with their basic needs.
The WE Conference is a free outreach and recruitment conference
that will be May 22 & 23 at the McAllister Auditorium. This
is the second year that HEB has been the primary sponsor of the WE Conference. In 2012 the WE keynote speaker was Christy
Banazek, HR director for HEB. This
year’s speaker is Dr. Laura Rendón, a former SAC student now a professor with
the Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies at UTSA.
This two-day WE event is open to women who want information
on returning to school, career and/or personal development. Deadline for registration is Friday, May 17.
Last year 22 students received WE scholarships
ranging from $500 to $1,000 per student.
