President's Statement Women's History Month 2021
There are so many reasons I like the month of March. Spring is around the corner, St. Patrick’s Day, the founding of the Girl Scouts, and of course women’s history month. But for a lot of us the middle of March also marks the anniversary of a pandemic that changed our lives drastically. We’ve done a lot of growing in this year and spent time focusing on what is most important to us.
Human connection is on the top of that list. So how do we celebrate this month, and honor the great change that happened?
The work we do at WIFVNE is a year-round endeavor. The spotlight is naturally on women of history this month, but that history doesn’t disappear in the other months on the calendar.
So we are encouraging you to MAKE history. Join us, network, find ways to make human connections that matter. Become a mentor, make a big ask for a project that you’re passionate about, Watch a film that you normally wouldn’t have, talk to someone new.
We are here for you. Let's make some history and Change the Lens.
