Women of Worth is empowering women all across Tech’s campus.

The group, created in 2014, is run by Chandler Keys, a senior mechanical engineering major. 

“We try to have events catered to what the students want to talk about that also align with our message,” Keys said.

Marketta Collins, a sophomore sociology major who recently joined the group this semester, said WOW gives her the chance to be herself and open up to the girls around her.

“I love the activities that we’ve done so far. We did a vision board at the last meeting which gave me the change to set personal goals and come up with some ideas about how I want my life to turn out,” Collins said.

Chanel Blackmon is one of 12 committee members who help plan the events for WOW.

“Our first event was a get to know each other event where we met and played ice-breaker games. At the event on the 26thwe made vision boards and watched the movie ‘Nappily Ever After’,” Blackmon said.

Keys said she wants other women to know WOW is a safe space for them to openly talk about the issues they face, as well as a way to encourage empowerment and self-discovery.

“WOW gives me the chance to be myself, open up to the girls around me and not have to uphold a certain image,” Collins said. 

Collins said WOW is a support system where members are like family. 

Students interested in joining WOW may attended Wednesday’s meeting in Room 258 of the RUC at 6 p.m.
