WELCOME TO POSSE EMPOWERMENT
Posse Empowerment is a female-led organization designed to Expose, Engage and Encourage females to explore careers and opportunities in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math).

POSSE: a Latin word meaning Empowerment.
"I used to not like being called a 'woman architect.' I'm an architect, not just a woman architect. The guys used to tap me on the head and say 'you're OK for a girl.' But I see an incredible amount of need from other women for reassurance that it can be done, so I don't mind anymore"
- Globally renowned architect Zaha Hadid
