THOUGHTS ON UPWARD: “Upward has been a true gift! The experience has provided me with tangible tools and knowledge to become a better leader – both personally and professionally. I have connected with a diverse group of women who have already become lifelong friends who are supportive, motivating, and inspiring to be around.”
OPPORTUNITY AT MOMENTUM: “I know that the sky is the limit here at Momentum, especially being surrounded by such smart, compassionate, and accomplished women! I am honored to have this opportunity and look forward to the growth I’ll experience through getting to work alongside our team, supporters, and classes.
I am excited to roll up my sleeves and connect our supporters and sponsors with the incredible impact they’re making. It cannot be overstated just how important our programs are in shaping the lives of women, and in re-shaping societal norms. I look forward to providing new philanthropic opportunities for everyone to become engaged in the Momentum movement!”
