MILWAUKEE — Two long-time Milwaukee organizations supporting women have banded together during this pandemic

YWCA Southeast Wisconsin and Professional Dimensions created a series of virtual events they hope every woman will take part in.

The event is aimed to help women manage the pressure. A woman’s role as a pillar in society has become magnified in this pandemic, “All of these things are falling on women’s plates,” said Jaclyn Stoczanyn, Professional Dimensions.

YWCA of Southeast Wisconsin and Professional Dimensions organizations spent the past five months to create this special virtual series for women to learn self-care. The first event is set for Oct. 28.

YWCA SEW’s Jennifer de Montmollin shared her hope “Leave everything women are dealing with at the door for this hour and a half.”

It gets straight to the point, the first event set for Oct. 28 is aptly titled "How to Keep it together when I feel like I’m falling apart!"

“You are going to feel part of a team of women all striving together that is our goal,” said de Montmollin.

Different life coaches will be part of these virtual events. Every woman in this effort is doing this for free, to make sure the women in your life know our entire community is rallying behind her.

“If we could convince women that taking time for themselves is not a luxury it is a necessity that would be a huge win for this program,” de Montmollin adds.
