Mia M. Harris is a proud United States Marine Corps Veteran who has been involved in the dialogue over the social and economic disadvantages of women for over 20 years. She has led and coordinated many efforts to balance the inequalities that have been a large part of the stagnation felt in the female population. She has made it her life commitment to try to correct this imbalance by providing the resources and directives needed to enable more women to become more active in the social and economic growth of their perspective communities. She feels that the core of the solutions to inspiring and creating more women leaders, mentors and entrepreneurs of the future is to create the foundation for them to prosper today.
It is the strong commitment that Mia has to her community and the women everywhere that has motivated her to establish and create this Organization. In the furtherance of the goals of the Organization, she plans to develop and inspire role models and mentors for future generations that will embrace the plight of providing opportunities for other young women and those that identify as female to create a world of level opportunities that will allow for the expressions of unlimited gifts and talents that women have to offer that will aid in the strengthening of our community relationships.
As the Founder and Executive Director of the Organization, Mia M. Harris plans to dedicate the rest of her life to fundraising and increasing the awareness about the needs of women and how increasing the resources and opportunities of women can lead to a more positive and socially advanced society and provide a more economically rewarding future for us all.
