The Committee on the Status of Women will host later this month a workshop developed to help women to unleash their potential and become successful in their professional, financial and personal lives.

The event, “I Matter: This is My Year,” will be held Jan. 29, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Lihu‘e Civic Center, Mo’ikeha Building, Meeting Room 2A/B.

“This workshop is for women who feel stuck and would like to improve various aspects of their lives, e.g. their job, finances, health, or relationships,” said empowerment coach Savita Kumar, who will be facilitating the workshop.

Kumar is a former member of the Committee on the Status of Women, and she continues to be committed to helping women to take charge of their lives and to be able to share their unique strengths with their families and communities.

Growing up in India, Kumar always had a burning curiosity about the world. She trained as a scientist, receiving masters’ degrees in microbiology and botany. Though she has always been fascinated by the scientific world, her true passion has always been people.

The CSW is part of the Hawai‘i State Commission on the Status of Women, which strives to advance the status of women and girls by acting as a catalyst for positive change through advocacy, education, collaboration and program development.

The CSW meets on the third Wednesday of the month. The next scheduled meeting is Jan. 21, 5 p.m., Lihu‘e Civic Center, Mo’ikeha Building, Meeting Room 2A/2B.

All CSW meetings are open to the public.
