The CMO Club’s mission is to help its members connect and solve their biggest challenges within a candid, trusted, and sharing environment. Now, the CMO Club Cares builds upon that mission, helping our members connect with the organizations and causes they care about.
We are honored to work with inspiring non-profits who are making a huge impact in all corners of the globe. Our featured charitable organization for this upcoming Virtual CMO Club Cares brainstorming session is: The Empowerment Plan. Their mission – To end the generational cycle of homelessness and poverty through employment. Their vision – In the world we see; marginalized communities living in poverty will have the tools to become the architects of their own future.
Empowerment Plan Founder, Veronika Scott set out to create an opportunity she wished her own family had been given. Initially, this opportunity took the form of a coat—a coat that could turn into a sleeping bag. It wasn’t until a homeless woman approached Veronika that she realized the true potential of her project. This woman did not want a coat; she wanted a job. It was at that moment Veronika committed to hiring parents from shelters across Detroit to manufacture the coats in an effort to help families break that vicious cycle of poverty and become financially secure.
