“I have seen countless women receive awards from many organizations, but they always forget to recognize successful and hardworking mothers that not only raised successful sons and daughters, they also threw back the rope once they had jumped over the wall,“ said Josephine Wade, business owner and president/founder of We Women Empowered. We have too many young women and men looking at us and needing our help. The first step is to give them our wisdom as parents and allow them to know they and their children can achieved success against all odds. The event is an afternoon of giving back and empowerment where the mothers of celebrities will discuss and share their mother wit and pearls of knowledge about the journey of motherhood. The eventful afternoon is meant to encourage and support current and future parents about the responsibilities of parenthood.

We Women Empowered have asked these Celebrity Mothers to take part in an intimate panel discussion Moderated by Celebrity Mamas Creator Maretta Johnson (Jacques Johnson) on What makes a great mother, How did they raise their children, educate their families, and encourage their husbands and significant partners to be equal contributors? The purpose of the panel is to begin the transfer of wisdom from seasoned mothers to younger women and men to support them as they embark on the journey of living their dream life.
We Women Empowered was created by business owner and agent of social change Josephine “Mother” Wade. Wade’s vision was to create an organization of women to support children in the foster care system. She realized these children went without the support necessary to succeed. Since its inception, the not-for-profit organization has provided support to thousands of children in the Chicago metropolitan area. The organization also mentors and supports young women in their aspirations to become business owners. All funds garnered from the upcoming event will be utilized to support beneficial program initiated for young people in the foster care system.
