Our Story:

Marisol “Mari” Weymouth and Yorka Velasco-Caballero met in 2017 through a mutual colleague, Isidro V. Reyes.  Isidro connected the kindred spirits, as he identified a common empowering spark in each one of them, that together they can accelerate change.

In 2018, they continued their independent efforts to empower women through women-inspired events and programs.  It was during one of their one-hour coffee collaboration sessions, which typically lasted over three hours, they identified there was a healthy appetite and opportunity to accelerate the women movement, and therefore established the platform to empower women, iEmpower.
