    From our February 2021 members program: 

    Listen to this NPR story to hear one professional woman’s story; she had everything going for her until COVID-19 happened:  https://www.npr.org/2020/11/14/935018298/why-the-pandemic-is-forcing-so-many-women-to-leave-their-jobs. The end of the story notes various policies that would help and we are pleased to announce that MDWA’s February program will examine how these policies could help alleviate the stresses on working women and their families.

    Thank you for attending the MDWA Belonging Conversation on Race. We hope you found the conversations to be insightful and valuable! You can make plans now to attend the next conversations in the series. 

    Also, as promised in our debrief, see attached for letters from Dr. Kimberly Barrett on “Calling In vs Calling Out”—this concept always resonates well in our discussions. For those who don’t know, Dr. Barrett is VP-Diversity and Inclusion at Lawrence University as well as co-chair of the Imagine Fox Cities’ Belonging committee.

    MDWA values leadership development, yet I would hazard to guess that there are as many definitions of "leadership" as there are people, surely with some commonalities.

    What does "leadership" mean/look like to you? 

    Your perspective and insights are wanted and valued.
