Academy For Women’s Empowerment

Why do women and girls shrink in a classroom, a boardroom, and a conversation? As a teacher, counselor, and principal for over twenty years, this big question made Kristi Hemmer, M.Ed. mad enough to quit her six-figure life in Tokyo in 2010 to answer the question and solve the problem. She spent four years traveling the world out of a medium sized duffle bag living on $20 a day learning about young women who were solving social questions with businesses; in the process of learning about social entrepreneurship from Esther in Singapore, Lauren in Costa Rica, and Madi in the USA, Kristi founded her own social enterprise-Academy for Women’s Empowerment (AWE) in 2013.

Over seven years later and thousands of lives changed, The Academy is part of the Collective that will focus on education.
