From Those We've Served

I am incredibly thankful for the added support that your organization has provided for me and my family. As a single mother of two young boys, I find myself constantly struggling financially with the added responsibilities of childcare services. Your support has made it possible for me to focus on work, home, and kids without the added financial strain. Thank you for alleviating life for me in a very meaningful way.

There’s something empowering about a room full of successful women. We are learning to be one voice; when one woman is successful, we are all successful!

Kathy, CWC Mentor

From Those We've Served

Thank you for focusing your support on female veterans – we are the last group of women to ask for help and support out of all women. We were taught to never to show or admit to any weakness but need to learn self-care and support. This was a very empowering and motivating event.

  • Join us on September 7th at 6:00pm (PT) for our up Join us on September 7th at 6:00pm (PT) for our upcoming Summer of Self-Care session "Self-Advocacy: A Cornerstone of Self-Care".

Self-Advocacy, the ability to speak up for our needs, is an essential  aspect of self-care. Not advocating for ourselves can result in stress, frustration and disempowerment. Some examples of self-advocacy include  saying “no,” asking for help, and carving out needed “me time.” Yet, ingrained beliefs and fears often prevent us from voicing our needs.

Self-advocacy can be especially difficult for active service members and veterans whose service often entails considerable self-sacrifice and service to others. 

In this session, we will explore what aspects of our lives are calling for self-advocacy, what gets in the way of us advocating for ourselves and steps we can take on the path to becoming a self-advocate . The session will incorporate aspects of mindfulness and self-compassion covered in prior sessions as tools to assist us in developing our self-advocacy skills.

    Military aviation proudly recounts its past, susta Military aviation proudly recounts its past, sustains its present and looks towards its future. Part of its history tells the story of the female pilots who stepped up to ensure aircraft were available and ready during World War II. The WASPs, or the Women Airforce Service Pilots, provided an invaluable service to our country in wartime. Their legacy influenced future women in military aviation who became leaders, innovators, and decision-makers. Now, their legacy lives on as the most lethal and connected fifth-generation aircraft, the F-35 Lightning II, operates daily worldwide.

In 2015, then U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Christine Mau became the first female F-35 pilot when she completed a flight in the Lightning II. Mau retired in 2017, but her story remains a key highlight of the F-35 story.
