What we aim to solve

21st century living is not easy, subsequently, women need to acquire the knowledge, attitude, and skills to develop self-awareness and self-management, use social-awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships, and demonstrate decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in order to achieve life success. The Keitt Institute has found seven core areas that women must work on to sustain their success. These areas are spirituality/morality, emotional stability, relational well-being, physical health, professional development, financial responsibility, and sexuality/self-esteem. In each area, we have designed curriculum to meet each woman’s need where she is, taking her on a journey that equips her with powerful tools to solve today's problems.

The Keitt Institute exists to empower, educate, equip, and encourage a global community of women who are being transformed in their thinking, pursuing their unique purpose and unlocking their full potential.

Our strategy for helping this generation of women live engaged, successful, fulfilling lives centers on the development of their Core7™ Areas. Our Core7™ model of empowerment focuses on the following key areas: emotions, finances, sexuality, physical health & wellbeing, relationships, career, and spirituality/morality. We have developed curricula that track with women for every stage of their lives, starting in high school and taking them through adulthood. Our curriculum pathway begins by training high school juniors and seniors in our #StrongGirls™ program. Young women are equipped with a deep understanding of themselves, the ability to operate from a place of emotional intelligence, the understanding of how healthy relationships are formed and sustained, and self-confidence fueled by the systems they develop to sustain their physical and mental health. We then build on these concepts with our Books & Bosses™ curriculum. As college students, young women take the time to analyze how their personality impacts how they interact with others, how they build relationships, how they think, how they relate to money, and how they find their place in this world. This helps them move through college with purpose, direction, and focus that sets them up for fulfillment and success when they enter the workforce​. Finally, our PowerHer™ program provides sustained support for adult women. We have developed ongoing courses that tackle issues ranging from how to turn their personal and professional dreams into a reality to how to parent their children for success. This gives women strategies and communities to draw on to support them on their life journey. By providing targeted curricula and courses we are able to equip women with social and emotional intelligence which enables them to develop better relationships both personally and professionally, manage stressful situations with an understanding of their own psychological and emotional state, better understand communication gaps in diverse work environments, and work well with others.

StrongGirls framework #StrongGirls™ is a Keitt Institute specialized empowerment experience designed exclusively for High School Junior and Senior young women that are hungry to know themselves and to tap into their power. In sessions filled with conversation, training, exercises, reflection, interaction, and teaching, young women have their lives unlocked in order to realize their unique contribution to the world! We are extremely proud of the young ladies that are part of the #StrongGirls™ community! These juniors and seniors represent different countries, different nationalities, and ethnicities. We are excited to see first hand just how powerful this program is for young women who come from different backgrounds. Books & Bosses framework The Keitt Institute’s Books & Bosses Initiative is a four-part experience that takes college women through our 4-P System of Empowerment! In sessions one through four, college women will learn the power of their personality, discover the purpose of their lives, delve into the power of their purse, learn how to have healthy people relationships, and unlock the secrets to gaining emotional awareness when dealing with others. PowerHer framework Created and led by The Keitt Institute’s Chief Empowerment Officer, Jennifer Keitt, our PowerHER™ programming is the opportunity to give women, engaging, enlightening and strategic content. PowerHER™ programming is steeped in social-emotional learning is a focused, engaging, and empowering time designed to give today’s woman the tools, topics and tips for life success through courses, private mastermind groups, and large group experiences.

We measure the progress of our programming by having our participants identify key action steps to begin implementing positive life change after each session. At the conclusion of each program, participants rate their ability to enact the skills they just learned. We also structure touch points after and between program sessions in order to reinforce what is learned. We count it as a success when women and girls are actively assessing where they are and using skills learned in our programs to make life changes as they see fit.

In the past five years our organization has exploded! Through our #StrongGirls initiative we have served nine schools (including one in Rwanda, Africa) and over 350 students in the past three years. Additionally, Books & Bosses will reach over 160 students in spring 2019, which is more than all of our previous years combined. The PowerHer Initiative has served over 4,000 women with our free webinars. Our in person experiences have enriched more than 1,000 women over the last four years. As we continue to empower women our goals are to establish partner schools in each of the largest metro-Atlanta districts to expand our #StrongGirls programming, to develop a direct to student online community for small groups of college women around the country in the Books & Bosses initiative, and to have greater impact on the personal development of professional women by delivering content directly to them via continued webinars and in person empowerment experiences both outside and inside the workplace.
