what is Empower?
EMPOWER is an investment firm and advocate for the forgotten and underserved citizens of our society.
Our programs are centered around providing people with the resources, expert mentors, education and training to attain economic empowerment and personal/professional growth.
Our belief that diversity and inclusion are the building blocks of personal growth and a successful business is the reason why we've chosen an employment training program as our first project.
This program provides employment training and job placement for people who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We take great pride in giving the folks that society has, for the most part, discarded to the side and labeled "unqualified" in the work force - the folks who are told to settle for a life of no ambition because others can't see their potential.
This program opens doors for our developmentally disabled brothers and sisters by giving job training, guidance, and just sheer belief that they have the potential to have jobs and careers alongside other talented and highly skilled workers.

Hello, I'm Diana!
I am a natural born helper. My usual position is to be the person behind the scenes making sure that things run well, but I'm not shy about interacting with others because I love people!
