Cara BelvinFounder empowerHER
Cara Belvin is passionate about volunteerism. She spent countless hours as a breast cancer advocate, and it was in this role that she saw a need in the community. Her own mother passed away at the young age of 37 after a two-year battle with breast cancer when Cara was just 9 years old. Cara’s extended family and friends assisted in filling the void left behind by this profound loss. empowerHER was formed out the gratitude she felt for all the layers of support her family received growing up – And, now as a mother, she felt it would be as much for these mothers as it would be for these young girls.
She frequently presents on issues surrounding adversity, women’s empowerment, and social entrepreneurship. Cara is the lead producer of HBO’s The Conversation: Stories that Matter speaker series, and the episodic digital series The Dinner Conversation about women powering through their grief. Her efforts to support young girls have been featured on the ABC Boston Affiliate Channel 5 and on PBS NewsHour with Judy Woodruff.
