Join me on location at the Pennsylvania Women’s Conference at the Philadelphia Conference Center as I interview Executive Director of Speakup! Martie Bernicker.
SpeakUp! is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping teens develop supportive relationships with the adults in their lives. They enable teens to talk openly, honestly and without judgment about difficult topics and reach out for support within their homes and schools.
SpeakUp! focuses on the fact that no matter what the problem is – stress, drugs, alcohol, depression, anxiety, suicide, relationships, social media or others – the solution always begins with realizing you are not alone and having the courage to speak up and ask for help.
Martie has been actively involved with SpeakUp! since its inception and became the Executive Director in 2015. Martie has over 20 years of experience providing strategic advisory services to individuals, nonprofits and foundations including The Pew Charitable Trusts, the William Penn Foundation, Glaxo Smith Kline, and others.
