ST. GEORGE, Utah (ABC4 News) – A women’s empowerment center had its grand opening Thursday in St. George. Local female entrepreneurs at the Society Center said they now have a creative and comfortable place in Southern Utah to follow their passions.
The Society Center is a dream of local entrepreneur and CEO Casey Kuckert who said she wanted to create a community of empowered women who lift each other up.
“I really want this to be a community where women feel safe,” Kuckert said. “They can come in and get creative, feel inspired, and be empowered.”
Kuckert said the center has a variety of comfortable spaces, including private office suites and full-time desk spaces, where women can expand their businesses, collaborate with each other, and feel supported and connected.
St. George entrepreneur Samantha Parker said her business has doubled since she started using a space less than a month ago, allowing her to bring on two new employees.
“I would love to see this all over Utah, but it’s really needed in Southern Utah,” Parker said. “It’s a great safe space for women to come in and express their ideas and get support.”
Women at The Society Center said the welcoming culture allows them to better juggle motherhood and the pressures of a new or growing business and sharing and collaborating with one another helps them through any moments of self-doubt.
The center holds empowerment workshops for women to focus on self-care, achieving work-life balance, and encouraging women to use their voice.
