We are thrilled to see such a powerful, driven and inspirational woman win the 2014 DVF People’s Voice Award! Veronika Scott is the Founder and CEO of The Empowerment Plan in Detroit. Her vision began as a 20 year old product design student at The College for Creative Studies in Detroit. It started as a class project and became a non-profit organization when she graduated in December 2011.
This year, Equilibrium supported this woman and her non-profit by donating and purchasing many coats in our client’s name. You all have played an integral part in her success and in supporting a local visionary. We are pleased to have honored you in this meaningful way.
The focus of the Empowerment Plan “is to create jobs for those who desire them, and to provide coats at no cost for those who need them.”
Read this note from Veronika to her voters:
“On behalf of our whole team, THANK YOU for taking the time to vote! Without your belief in our mission and the women we hire, we would not be receiving this award. It is truly humbling to know that we have such a strong support system! I will be heading to the Women in the World conference next week to accept the $50,000. This donation will make a huge difference in further empowering the women we currently employ while helping us to expand and touch so many others in need! It will also help bring The Empowerment Plan to a larger stage to speak about Detroit, empowerment, employment, and fashion with a cause! Again, a huge thank you for voting!! Your support is appreciated more than you will ever know!”
