Author and Empowerment Coach to Speak at Through the Wire Lecture Series
March 04, 2013
In celebration of Women's History Month, Emmanuel will welcome author and empowerment speaker Nicole Roberts Jones to the latest installment of the Through the Wire lecture series on March 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Janet M. Daley Library Lecture Hall.
The lecture, "Define Your Own Way: The 6 Keys of Living Your Greatest Life," draws from Jones's book of the same name, and will instruct attendees let go of self-imposed limits; discover purpose; build self-worth; understand the importance of health, education and finance; build healthy relationships and believe in their gifts.
As the founder and CEO of iDEFINE Youth Foundation, Jones has worked to empower teenage girls since 1993. She also works with women and entrepreneurs all over the country to create visions for their lives and businesses that will propel them toward become the people they are meant to be. Jones received her MSW from the University of Southern California and has been an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California School of Social Work and the Boston University School of Social Work.
Through the Wire is the College's diversity lecture series that serves as a means to stimulate intellectual discourse on campus with an emphasis on issues of race, racism and socioeconomic status. The series provides a mix of dynamic speakers who engage and challenge all Emmanuel students, particularly students of color, to affirm identity, challenge stereotypes and become active learners of their cultures and history, resulting in self-advocacy and enhanced critical thinking skills.
This lecture is sponsored by the Asian Student Association, the Black Student Union, CASE, HUELLAS and the Student Government Association.
