About the organization:
Finishing School for Modern Women is not your grandmother’s etiquette school. We offer women's empowerment classes to help women grow their authentic selves. The Finishing School for Modern Women brings together women of all ages to learn from each other how to claim our power in business, finance, communication, and life. Not because we need finishing but because we're never finished.

What Is Your Superpower?
Thursday, October 19th, 6 to 8:30 PM
Have you ever thought about what superpower you’d like to have? While we cannot fly through the air, fend off bullets, or force people to tell the truth with a magic lasso, we all have unrecognized superpowers that can be used for good, not evil. In this interactive class, we’ll do a deep dive to discover the traits that make you mighty and how these qualities can be honed into your superpowers because Wonder Woman is not just fictional. Women Woman is a mindset.
Ready For Your Closeup with Co-teacher Christi Moser
Thursday, November 16th, from 6 to 8:30 Do you hide from the camera because you don’t like to see pictures of yourself? You can be present in your life and in the pictures taken at friend and family gatherings by determining how to position yourself at just the right angle. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll discover which poses and expressions work best for you, photo makeup advice, how to find your light, and other tips for fab photos without filters or editing.
Speak with Power
Wednesday, September 6th
Do you feel heard and respected? Women have received a lifetime of programming, learning to soften our voices in the words and tones we use and the nonverbal messages we send. We damage our credibility and give away our power in a quest to be seen as “nice girls.” In this interactive class, you’ll discover how to use direct language to state your mind with confidence, replace language that belittles us, and nonaggressively present yourself powerfully.

Making Connections That Count: A Finishing School for Modern Women Class Thursday, December 7th, from 6 to 8:30 Does the thought of having to talk to people you don’t know make you queasy?
Introverts and extroverts can make stronger connections with new friends and business associates by refining this fundamental tool for success, no matter what business or stage of life you’re in.
