Each time you purchase an item (yoga mat, leggings, notebook, sticker... anything!) from Empowered Life Apparel, you have the opportunity to support the Institute for Women's Policy Research. IWPR has a statement that we couldn't agree with more: "A just future starts with bold ideas". Current and past achievements have been incredibly impactful in illuminating gender disparities and lifting the voices of women. Their evidence-based mentality and determination reflects the go-getter, community focused attitude we have here at ELA. After thorough research and comparison, the aforementioned reasons and the non-profit's basis of women's empowerment contributed to our final decision, bringing us to the conclusion that IWPR is by far the best-matched charity for ELA Empire to support. Their mission is, "We win economic equity for all women and eliminate barriers to their full participation in society. As a leading national think tank, we build evidence to shape policies that grow women’s power and influence, close inequality gaps, and improve the economic well-being of families."
