Who We Are

Our Story

EmpowR Transformation was birthed into being by founder Rae Carter in 2019 as a way to support the Great Turning—shifting from an industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization. As one small player in shared visions to heal ourselves to heal the world, Rae conceptualized EmpowR by weaving together her career background, lived experiences navigating a health crisis, and lifelong path of influencing transformation and challenging the status quo.

With deep intentionality, Rae began to build a container that could share the complexity of her gifts and depth of her vision for co-creating cultural conditions of belonging for New Earth. Determined to break free from the silo of entrepreneurship, Rae centers building relationships and community with people working towards similar visions and people with shared life purposes to be the change we want to see in the world.

The 2022 EmpowR Co-Creator Team is emerging into a network of community members and co-creators to weave a broader web of equity change makers, healing practitioners, and social change service providers.

EmpowR is calling in co-creators to build relationship and community who:

  • curate support networks for dominant system disruption, 
  • work in Diversity/Equity/Inclusion/Belonging organizational change and culture building,
  • serve in leadership or gatekeeper roles that, with coalition building, have the potential to influence power and structure shifts,
  • provide allopathic and holistic health care to people with marginalized identities,
  • serve at the intersection of social and healing justice.

To get more involved, interested co-creators are encouraged to join the EmpowR Community and participate in EmpowR programs to build relationship with each other and to foster inclusive community with reciprocity.

EmpowR Transformation is calling in financial partners to fund curation and facilitation of a collective impact network of co-creators.
