Our first official stop on our National Respect Tour was Mount Mary College in Milwaukee. We reached girls and women ranging in age from 14 to 57, including local high school students who joined the Mount Mary women and faculty for this empowering Respect Summit and leadership training.
Mount Mary College, an urban Catholic college for women sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, is recognized as a diverse learning community that works in partnership with local, national and global organizations to educate women to transform the world through developing competence, community, compassion and commitment.
This tour stop was sponsored by the Brewers Community Foundation and the Mount Mary Diversity Committee. The Respect Institute was also able to give free copies of RESPECT to all the teen girls in attendance. Here are just a few of the comments from the participants:
“After today, I have tools to create respect in my relationships”
“I believe respecting myself will help me reach my goals.”
“The Respect Basics are valuable to use in my work”
