That luncheon rocked!

By Marjorie Sims on October 11th, 2007

Hi all!  This is Marjorie and Deb here, and we couldn’t wait to share our reactions to yesterday with everyone!

Wow, talk about change!  Having experienced yesterday’s Leadership Luncheon, we can’t believe how much things have changed—how much bigger it is, how packed that room was with women and men supporting our region’s women and girls, the amount of money ($1 MILLION!!!) we’re able to commit, together, to building our community!

How paid sick days can mean safe days for women.

By Mari Villaluna on September 24th, 2007

“Get out of my room!” he screamed at me.

I said nothing, except for knocking down his video tapes.  It was at this point he charged me, and knocked me to the ground.  I used my will and all my strength to fight back while trying to escape his apartment.

Thanks to The Women’s Foundation for the experience of a lifetime!

By Sharon Wise on September 18th, 2007

Dear Washington Area Women’s Foundation,

My name is Sharon Wise and I’m one of the students enrolled in the Female Property Management Certificate training at Southeastern University (a Stepping Stones Jobs Fund Grantee Partner).
 
I just wanted to let you know that everything is great!  I love my class and I am learning so much. I am in a communications class and the facilitators are so funny and smart.  I did not know there were so many ways to email, write letters and express oneself.

Change up your lunch routine, and learn how to change up our community.

By Lynn Parseghian on September 14th, 2007

The 2006 Leadership Luncheon convinced me that I needed to get involved with The Women’s Foundation.

I have never seen so many dynamic women — so powerfully and passionately committed to helping other women — all in one place at the same time!

Ayuda: Fighting slavery in our own backyard.

By Lisa Kays on September 14th, 2007

Ayuda is deeply familiar with the struggles of low-income immigrants in the Washington, D.C. area. We have been at the forefront of providing multi-lingual social and legal services to immigrants for the past 34 years. Ayuda routinely helps immigrants reunite with their families, apply for citizenship or asylum and protect themselves and their children from domestic violence.

The revolution will begin with women.

By Lisa Kays on September 13th, 2007

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation’s International Humanitarian Symposium and awards ceremony.  The event this year was themed, "The Changing Face of Philanthropy: Evolution or Revolution?"

I couldn’t help but be pleased to note that throughout the symposium and dinner discussions–formal and informal–that there was an important subtext.
