The Word of the Year, Nimble
President’s Message 
The Word of the Year, Nimble - President's Message
Every year Merriam-Webster publishes a word of the year. This is my formal submission of the word “ nimble ” for 2020. At Impact 100 (and every other organization on the planet) this is THE word for 2020. 

To be nimble is to be clever, quick, alert, resourceful, responsive and sensitive.  

During the last 79 days, our organization has exemplified what it means to be nimble, and I would like to share some of this work with you.
