Inspiring Beauty the Poodle Way

Was the third year the Flower City Poodles participated in Mayor Lovely Warren’s Inspiring Beauty Red Carpet Affair and we couldn’t be more proud to serve the young women in our community in partnership with City of Rochester, NY - Mayor's Office.

“Inspiring Beauty” is the Mayor’s FREE educational and networking program for young women. This event serves an opportunity for young women ages 14 to 22 to come and network with their peers, while interacting with influential women ("Role Models”) from across the community, in a formal, but fun and relaxed atmosphere. The Mayor’s desire is for the young women in attendance to meet and greet the “Role Models” who share their life stories and how they were able to be successful in their careers and achieve their goals.

The “Role Models” have been educators, attorneys, business owners, engineers, etc., who volunteer to spend the evening sharing their life experiences and conversing with the young women about their own dreams and aspirations in hopes of making lasting connections which may turn into an educational, internship or job opportunity.

The “Inspiring Beauty” event is successful largely because of the continued support received from the local chapters of international sororities, community agencies, residents and various schools and colleges in our area.

The young women in attendance also have the opportunity to interact with members from the local chapters of international sororities, local colleges and representatives from the City of Rochester.

Previous topics covered at “Inspiring Beauty” included “Social Media Manners”, “Tips on Dressing for an Interview” and more. In order to be selected to be a part of this formal event, young women must submit a 200-word essay and tell the Mayor about themselves.
