Dogeared was so honored to once again be a sponsor at the 11th Annual Inspiration Awards hosted by Step Up Women’s Network. The day brought together a room of nearly 900 amazing women to celebrate inspiring young girls who have worked so hard to overcome, grow and step into a new chapter in their life. Their stories are heartfelt, their obstacles and challenges monumental and their success inspiring. These young women provide so much to all of us who have had the honor to see them grow and to share in their journey. Dogeared is so grateful to partner with Step Up and help foster their vision… inspiring women to inspire girls.

Over 60 Step Up high school teens were paired with mentors from various professional industries to spend the day learning everything about the college admissions process, take a tour of campus and gain valuable career insights from professionals.
Karen was the keynote speaker opening the day’s events and earned lots of love for Dogeared! She did such an amazing job! The girls each took home a karma necklace in their gift bag – symbolizing Dogeared’s continued support for them on their journey towards personal growth.
A Truly Inspiring Day
This year, Dogeared made Step Up Women’s Network our non-profit partner…donating time and funds to incredible young girls and women. Step Up Women’s Network is a truly inspiring organization, fulfilling underserved girls’ in local communities to reach their full potential through education, mentoring and confidence building. Each year, SUWN hosts their annual Inspiration Awards Event at The Beverly HIlton Hotel here in Los Angeles. The Dogeared team was ecstatic to be invited to celebrate the successes of the graduating class of 2013 and honorees.
Our team was able to donate jewelry for the silent auction and to the honorary girls from the class of 2013 – (and not to mention, 100% graduation rate and EVERY one of them accepted into college!). Celebrity honorees at the event included Julie Bowen, of ‘Modern Family’ and fashion designer, Trina Turk and Nina Jacobson, producer of “The Hunger Games.”
The day was filled with inspiring, moving and impressive stories of courage and fortitude from the girls of the organization and the hardships they endured to get to where they are now. We were so happy to be a part of these young women’s lives and watch their success flourish! Check out some of their encouraging stories here- http://youtu.be/VmZ2tijiV9c
