APR Energy Partners with Generation W to Empower Women Nationwide
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville-based APR Energy and Generation W announced today that they have formed a strategic alliance to educate, inspire and connect women across the First Coast and beyond.
As a Generation W Foundation partner, APR Energy will serve as an ambassador of Generation W and its initiatives, using its resources to leave fingerprints and heart prints on people’s lives to make a distinct impact in the communities in which we live, work and play.
“We are very proud to join with Generation W as we work together to support this year’s events. As founder and chairman of APR Energy, I have long recognized the innate value women bring to our company and our clients around the world,” said John Campion, APR Energy Founder and Chairman. “In fact, one of our most successful sales directors, Libby Owen, is a shining example of a woman who began her career as an intern with us and through her hard work and commitment, was recognized for her achievements and grew within our ranks. It is her talent and determination that recently led our company’s efforts to provide power to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. And, she’s not alone in our company’s team of bright and capable women. Joining Generation W allows us to share Libby’s story to inspire others.”
APR Energy’s commitment is designed to support a wide range of Generation W’s premier, impactful events and activities throughout 2018, including the following:
Generation W “Rise & Shine” Signature Event: This national event—held annually in Jacksonville, this year on April 13, 2018—consistently brings a compelling program of thought provoking topics, creating greater awareness and understanding of the relevant and resonant issues of our time and the action steps available to affect change.
Generation WOW: This year-round program focuses on connecting girls to the positive and the possible through personal and leadership development, community service, WOW clubs, quarterly WOWsdom programs, an annual conference, and a mentorship experience with women from diverse career paths. APR Energy’s female leaders will take part in a month-long series to share the experiences that shaped their path, along with the skills, attributes and resources needed to succeed.
Generation WORKS: A dedicated day of service that brings sustainable change and impact to northern Florida neighborhoods. APR Energy’s involvement includes participation in and support of community projects designed to improve quality of life for residents in the greater Jacksonville community.
“Partnership with Generation W is grounded in the belief that women and girls play a critical role in supporting, building and strengthening our communities and our businesses. We are excited to partner with APR Energy, a company whose values are at the heart of what they do to support their people and the communities they serve,” said Donna Orender, Founder of Generation W. “This partnership is a call to action, for businesses across the country to stand together as we work to support women and girls in the service of building community.”
APR Energy is proud to be the inaugural partner of “WOWsdom! The Girls’ Guide to the Positive and the Possible”, Generation W’s newly released book. In addition to a local WOW club, APR Energy will be donating WOWsdom! to the PACE Center for Girls programs across Northeast Florida and beyond. This unique and vibrant book will be inspirational in the lives of thousands of teenage girls who will be empowered by personal lessons and intimate stories shared by many of today’s leaders.
“Generation W is a powerful organization that has helped open so many doors for women. We are thrilled to join their efforts, but this is only the first step,” said Angie Ferry, APR Energy Community Outreach Coordinator. “We strongly encourage other businesses across the First Coast and beyond to join us in helping Generation W support women, girls and community building here at home and around the world.”
