Vision

We envision a world where women through wisdom Aspire, Excel, Inspire, Outreach, and Unite in the collective efforts of all women to reach their fullest potential.






Our Story

“Women Inspired and Spiritually Empowered” started as a gripping and stimulating theme that was used at a conference for women. When that conference was over, it didn’t seem right to let it end there! Such a powerful statement was meant to be shared and used as a base upon which more should come. Thus, W.I.S.E. was developed to continue making a positive impact, and sharing valuable information, reliable resources, and encouraging good deeds among women across the globe.

Mission

Establish a support network of quality service providers and organizations, promoting the personal growth, self-development, and achievement of women; and the advancement of causes inherently valuable to women. We aim to encourage and engage women in creating a positive impact on the larger community and, ultimately, the entire human family. We are "Women Inspired and Spiritually Empowered", pursuing pathways to optimal living.

Empowering Women’s Health-Related Decision-Making: Choices and Outcomes





Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence are issues that affect women all year long, but in this month of October they are brought into our national dialogue. Both of these causes impact all cultures, religions, socio-economic and ethnic groups. These are important health issues that often require tough decision-making. Being informed to make the right decisions may lead to better outcomes on quality of life.


Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention


Breast cancer facts and figures show that about 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women, according to Breastcancer.org. Early detection is critical in the treatment of breast cancer. Based on data from the National Cancer Institute’s SEER database, the American Cancer Society has published “Breast cancer survival rates, by stage” which shows statistics of survival based on the stage of the cancer when it was first diagnosed. First diagnosis at the lowest stage had the highest survival outcomes. However, overall survival rates depend on each person’s diagnosis and treatment. Mammograms are one key to early diagnosis. Breast cancer treatment is a matter of personal choice. Find out more about what informs decision-making so that you are properly guided in the choices you make that will affect your outcome and quality of life. The article, “Breast Cancer Treatment Decisions: Personal Choice Is Key” reiterates that it is “critical to focus on your own particular case and work with a doctor you trust to help you make the best decisions about your care.”


Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention


If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, it’s time to get help. Resources are available 24/7, call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).


While Breast Cancer Awareness often garners more attention because of the commercial appeal of “pink” campaigns, Domestic Violence is no less important. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDD) categorizes violence as a “serious public health problem”. The statistics are startling: A woman is battered every nine seconds in the U.S. It is estimated that worldwide 70% of women will experience physical and/or sexual abuse by an intimate partner during their lifetimes. Whether by physical, emotional or financial abuse, women are most often the victims representing 85% of domestic abuse cases. The financial impact of domestic violence is also felt deeply with women and children. Fifty percent of all homeless women and children in the U.S. are fleeing from domestic violence, according to the American Civil Liberties Union "Domestic Violence and Homelessness" Women's Rights Project. Research shows that lacking financial knowledge and resources are the main factors that keep victims in relationships with their abusers. The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence Program supports Click to Empower and provides survivors with the financial knowledge, skills and resources they need to get safe, stay safe and thrive.
