The story of We Inspire Women

The C.E.O and creator of We Inspire Women, Cortia Bingham, had a story to tell and a strong desire to impact change. The story was one of triumph through numerous roadblocks including abuse, domestic violence and mental/emotional entrapment. The yearning to inspire other women by giving voice to her journey, created the palpable action to create a platform that vehemently proclaims one message, “Change your inner conversation…Change your life”

WE INSPIRE WOMEN

Many perceive the notion of “breaking the glass ceiling”, as an external impetus for women to thrive for better, specifically in their professional lives, but fortunately, the depth and breadth of a woman is greater and certainly more far reaching than that. As a matter of fact, most women prefer not to be cocooned into the space of a ceiling. Generally, women love to soar in all areas of their lives.

We Inspire Women, wholeheartedly believes that as the bedrock of the society, women must be equipped emotionally, mentally and physically to be better wives, mothers, entrepreneurs, friends, employees, bosses and leaders.  It is this belief that has created the biggest women’s weekend in Jamaica, coined, We Inspire Women Workshop & Brunch.

The event started in 2016, as the only event of its kind, where influential Jamaican women became vulnerable and showed their authentic self in order to uplift their tribe, other women. Inspirational stories of hope, endurance and determination, created an atmosphere that was conducive to love and sisterhood. The first year saw over one thousand women (1000), immersing in an experience that ignited their confidence in self and their ability to push pass their pain and get unstuck.
