The Ladies League of Detroit
The Ladies League of Detroit is a supportive network for women in Metro Detroit. It was founded in October 2017. The purpose is for professional and personal development, networking, women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, accountability, financial development, spirituality, and supportive friendship. The group is spiritually based, but is not religious.
The group is led by founder and CEO, LaTonia Walker, a native Detroiter, born and raised on the east side of Detroit. LaTonia is a Social Worker, and Motivational Speaker & Writer. She has overcome many personal challenges throughout life and now has a platform for women, providing motivation and inspiration. LaTonia is the CEO, of the LLC. There is a Leadership Committee comprised of 4 other members of the group who oversee the group, member selections, finances, documents, and other business relations.
Meetings are held twice monthly, once on a Wednesday and once on a Saturday. Each meeting has a different topic, usually with a speaker from within the group, then a discussion about the topic. Examples of previous topics include: love and forgiveness, failure and what you learned from it, positive body image, small business development, the path to purpose, and learning to put yourself first. Topics are developed by the founder, with input from the group.
Meeting activities can vary and include trips, books, outside speakers, and male attendance for certain topics. In addition to the meetings, the group is also engaged in community service. Membership requirements include, attending at least two meetings every three months, and membership dues of $25 per month. There may be other costs associated such as T-shirts, member business support, outings, trips, and other special activities.
Instead of repeating the narrative of how women do not support each other, The Ladies League of Detroit is the change that we want to see in the world. The group is encouraged to keep discussions confidential, to support each other’s businesses, professional ambitions, and to be a source of support in each other’s lives. It is a safe and judgment free zone for women to feel comfortable discussing their experiences, challenges, dreams, and ambitions.
