Veronika Scott: YSU Thomas Colloquium

Scott is the Founder of The Empowerment Plan, which was built on the idea to design a coat specifically for the homeless. The coat is self-heated, waterproof, and transforms into a sleeping bag at night. This idea led to a system that empowers homeless women as they are compensated for learning how to produce coats for those on the streets. They're given the opportunity to make money, find a place to live, and gain back their independence.


For most events, the exterior doors will open one hour prior to the scheduled event start time.
The Elevator is located in the south west corner just inside the ADA / Garden Entrance on the left.
Restrooms may be found on all levels. Accessible (ADA) restrooms may be found off of the ground floor (Ballroom) lobby & across from the elevator on the balcony/third level.
