About Aya, Incorporated -
A non­profit organization of professional women, Aya Inc. seeks to prepare young women of color in order that they might "lean in" to their professional endeavors. Through mentorship, entrepreneurship and leadership, women of Aya Inc. are empowered to soar. Specifically, Aya will include a series of workshops for undergraduates at Howard University and high school girls who live in Southeast, Washington D.C. These workshops include:

The program includes field trips, activities, and workshop presentations in various areas of professional, leadership, and entrepreneurial development. Learn more about Aya, Inc. on our website:
