Dear MWF Colleagues:

It’s halftime for 2021, and aren’t we all ready to celebrate this Independence Day holiday? YES!!! It feels good to be free from pandemic-driven isolation and fear. We’ve discovered so much about ourselves and each other … strengths we didn’t know we had, and vulnerabilities we never thought we would share. Bottom line, we’ve come through a lot together, and the best is yet to come.
 
Thanks to our outstanding MWF board, along with their committees and our wonderful new Executive Director Lauren Grymek, the first half of 2021 was a resounding success! Not only did we welcome 27 outstanding new members, but we had an amazing array of programming that brought us together for inspiration, enlightenment, influence, and sometimes just fun! We recorded several events so feel free to browse through and watch here.
 
We concluded MWF’s Spring programming with our signature mentoring event, Women Opening Doors for Women. Thank you to our 26 members who volunteered as mentors for the evening to speak with 75 emerging leaders from a variety of industries. So what’s next?
 
Beginning in September, in collaboration with Tomorrow’s Women Today, we will be piloting the Pay it Forward Pipeline. Our goal is to match aspiring women leaders with women of accomplishment, influence, and power (yes, that’s us!). This is our opportunity to pay it forward and I hope that you will consider participating in this six-month program. We promise it won’t be a heavy lift, but collectively we can make enormous impact. Let us know if you’ll participate its easy just click here!
 
Finally, some members have expressed interest in getting together informally this summer – some fun in the city or at the beach, walking tours or a backyard get together - please let us know. We’ll post your MWF Pop-up so you can see who’s around to play.
 
Have a great summer! Stay tuned for details on a fantastic in-person reunion we’re planning for September. I can’t wait to see you all!
 
With warmest regards,
