What does SheCAN! mean to you?

SheCAN! is a very special organization with the intent to help promote the development of woman (our whole self) to achieve our life goals both personally and professionally.  According to the World Economic Forum, current equality between men and women is still over 200 years away and this group is focusing on how to leapfrog these numbers.  Buffalo has become our home now and there are very special things happening here both within the community, the business and entrepreneurial environment. SheCAN! has developed programs and approaches based on research to help women succeed at every part of their life’s journey. It is a pleasure to be part of such a unique organization and to do so under the vision of Peggy is absolutely inspiring.

Thank you, Sheri, for your hard work and dedication to the personal and professional development of women!
