The Ladies League is a supportive network for women. The purpose of the group is professional and personal development. Our founding principles are women’s empowerment, networking, entrepreneurship, accountability, financial development, spirituality, and friendship.
The group is led by founder and CEO LaTonia Walker, LLMSW.
She is a native of Detroit, MI, a Social Worker, Motivational Speaker and Writer.
LaTonia is Director of Coaching & Engagement at COTS homeless shelter in Detroit. She has overcome many personal challenges throughout life and now has a platform for women, providing motivation and inspiration in a variety of ways.
The Ladies League currently has two chapter locations:
The Ladies League of Detroit is the founding city and was started in 2018.
The Ladies League of Baltimore was started in 2021.
Additional national chapters are in development.
The Ladies League is designed for women “in the middle.”
Not at the bottom, and not at the top. The Founder observed that as a Social Worker one segment of the community receives a plethora of resources; while on the opposite end of the spectrum, women on a higher level have support of a different sort. However, women in the middle do not receive support from either. Similar to the “middle child” syndrome, women in the middle are often forgotten about in the community.
The Ladies League offers support for this target market.
Meeting topics are focused on the whole woman, and we touch on every area of life. Examples of previous topics include: love and forgiveness, positive body image, small business development, the path to purpose, healthy lifestyle change, bouncing back after a breakup, healthy relationships and marriage, healthy grieving, breaking generational curses, book discussions, and so much more. We also participate in activities such as painting, dance & workout sessions, and photo shoots.
Meetings are held both in person and virtually.
In addition to regular meetings, the group is also engaged in community service.
We give back in a variety of ways and Ladies League members are required to participate in at least one community service project each year.
The group is encouraged 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. Instead of repeating the narrative of how women do not support each other we are the change we want to see in the world. Members agree to confidentiality as part of the signed application.
New ladies are required to attend two meetings and submit an application for membership. Members are required to attend at least two meetings every three months. Membership dues are $40 per month. It strongly recommended that new ladies interested in membership attend an Open House, which is held quarterly, to learn more about our network.
The Ladies League is a leader in Women’s Empowerment.
We are dedicated to building, supporting and encouraging women for success in professional and personal growth. We are committed to motivating, mentoring and inspiring women to embrace their power of purpose, and to live their best lives.
