WOMEN GET POLITICS
Women Get Politics is a non-partisan thought leadership forum created to amplify discourse surrounding political issues that affect women and girls. Our mission is to expand the understanding of how politics play a role in every aspect of life--economics, access to power and resources, education, employment, health, religion and lifestyle choices. The power of social media will be harnessed to aggregate and share relevant political issues and conversations while increasing opportunities for women's voices to be heard.

FAST BRAIN KIDS
Fast Brain Kids was started to provide healthy alternatives for children who are disproportinately being labeled with behavioral disorders in communities of color. Children have experienced reversal of symptoms through diet, exercise and removal of environmental toxins. Our children have diverse ways of viewing the world and processing information and should be celebrated.
Hiyaah Power stresses the importance of "bridge mentoring" in helping to close the inclusiveness gap. "It is critical that women who have gained access and success in the corporate arena reach back to lessen the learning curve for those younger women who will follow in their footsteps," states Jarvis.
