TMA Detroit Network and ACG Detroit Women's Forum
Keynote Luncheon with Veronika Scott, Founder and CEO, The Empowerment Plan


You are invited to a keynote luncheon with TMA Detroit Network of Women (NOW) and ACG Detroit Women's Forum at the Detroit Athletic Club, Friday, May 12.  

Veronika Scott, founder and CEO of The Empowerment Plan, has built an organization that began around a single idea: to design a coat specifically for the homeless. The coat is self-heated, waterproof, and transforms into a sleeping bag at night. That idea has now transformed into a system of empowerment in which homeless women are paid to learn how to produce coats for people living on the streets, giving them an opportunity to earn money, find a place to live, and gain back their independence for themselves and their families. 
 
Scott takes audiences on her journey from being on track to becoming a top product designer to dedicating her life to the empowerment of others through her own non-profit organization. Scott shares anecdotes from her time at a homeless shelter in Detroit where she conducted the research for her coat prototype. She also shares how her idea for creating a coat for the homeless led her to hiring the homeless. Audiences will leave with knowledge about homelessness and what can be done to help this growing population.
