We give women the tools to become positive leaders of influence in their communities through our four spheres; 

education; through sharing resources for educators and future students to obtain the education they desire.

encouragement; creating a bond through our active social media group, and placing our members in mentorship positions to encourage the next generation of successful women.

entrepreneurship: A hub where resources for current and aspiring entrepreneurs can go to launch their next big idea

election:  Vetted organizations that exist to help women run for office or run campaigns.

Our Mission

Women account for 52% of the SC population, and 33% of all business owners and in the US, a caucasian woman has to be asked 7 times to run for office before she files.  It takes an estimated 21 times to convince a woman of color to run for office. 

Our mission is to provide tools, resources and connections to women of all ages with dreams to chase, so that they can inspire and encourage the next generation of female leaders.

Step into the light, it's your time to shine.

October 2017

Femmeportant was created by Ashley Brown Strategy to help women believe in themselves by providing the necessary tools to their success. We serve as a hub of various resources and connections where women can use to answer basic questions. Starting a business- here's a PDF, here's an example of a business plan, here's a list of local organizations that offer grants/loans and advice, etc etc. We want every woman to feel femmeportant at the end of the day and to live out their purpose so that they can inspire the next generation of female leaders.
