Why GIFT? Because we are always in transition with a a story waiting to be shared.
The idea of creating GIFT (Gaining Insight for Transition) for Women began with an increasing interest from adult students/women in the classes Sepideh teaches in personal development. As women, we are always transitioning into the next level, often without the necessary skills, knowledge and tools to get to the next transition peacefully. It’s through these life transitions (i.e.. marriage, divorce, retirement, job change, motherhood, menopause,…) that anxiety and depression find their way into our hearts and prevent us from moving forward.
GIFT’s mission and purpose is to create a loving and supportive network for women in transitional stages and inspire them to connect with their passions, dreams and skills through access to a guest lecture series, employment and volunteer opportunities, and monthly meetings that encourage personal and professional growth. Meetings are held at the Chamber facilities from 12:00-1:00PM on the first Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held October-May, taking summer months off knowing how busy women are during those months.
