IMPOWER brings women together to Inspire, Motivate, Prepare and Organize Women to Engage and Reinvest.



IMPOWER- Inspire, Motivate, Prepare and Organize Women to Engage and Reinvest


Company Overview

IMPOWER is a program that was started in 2008 by Margaret D'Arrigo and Cathy Schlumbrecht under the Salinas Area Chamber Foundation. This program raises money to provide scholarships to women and girls in Monterey County and impact the community in other areas.


IMPOWER holds three luncheons and one mixer each year to provide opportunities for networking, increase your business, and be motivated by one of our fabulous speakers in the hopes more women (and men) get involved in the community. Each luncheon has a "call to action" in support of the non-profits in the community.
