Community Conversations Inspire Action Plans
What does economic security for women and girls look like?

How do we move past talking about disparities and collectively take action?

These are some of the questions we've raised in our three-part Through A Gender Lens: Virtual Community Conversation Series. More than 100 of you joined us for Parts 1 and 2 to hear more about the research covered in the 2020 online report, listen to each other's perspectives and ideas, and begin to identify ways we can join together to advocate for change.

As we reflect on the conversations thus far, it's clear that our community of changemakers is ready to get to work, unleashing the full potential of women and girls in Forsyth County. Are you ready to join us?

Our next and last conversation is on April 14th at noon. We'll be breaking into groups and making action plans to work towards:

  • Equitable Public Education (Pre-K through 12)
  • Fair and Livable Wages
  • Affordable Housing Options
  • Improved Access to Childcare

Make Your Voice Heard in Our Membership Survey
As a passionate group of women working towards common goals, we understand and value the importance of welcoming new ideas and listening to each other, and directly-impacted people. For this reason, we are deeply appreciative of our membership committee members who have developed a new survey for us.

We will use learning from survey responses to identify our strengths and determine ways we must grow and move forward as an organization. If you support us, partner with us, or are simply interested in our work, we kindly ask that you share your perspective and complete the survey by April 4th.


For your participation, you'll be entered into a drawing; the winner will select a local nonprofit to receive a $250 grant.
