Lead Through This

April Benetollo, CEO

We’ve all been through a lot in recent months. A global pandemic, worldwide economic instability, and an explosion of outcries against racial injustice. We stand with those outraged at the killing of George Floyd and the countless other Black lives lost to racial discrimination and oppression.

Your families, coworkers, and friends are looking to you right now for reassurance, and that’s a lot of pressure. If you are feeling overwhelmed, uncertain, confused, angry–we are here for you. We may not have the answers, but we will listen. We will provide support and connection: Contact Us.

As an organization, our core mission is to advance women in leadership—across race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and political affiliation. As leaders in our state, it is up to each one of us to check our own biases, to call out injustice when we see it, and to advocate for people of color. We call on the women of Momentum to lead by example, and to navigate these uncertain times with empathy, reason, and resolve.

In the coming weeks Momentum will share, via blog and social media, some resources, volunteer opportunities, and specific actions you can take to support girls and women of color. By standing together for justice and equality, by taking actions to promote diversity and inclusive communities, and by respecting a wide range of viewpoints, we can be tremendous agents of change.

In the words of Andrea McCaskey, “you were created for a time such as this.” We are the women the world needs now. 

Lean on one another. Lead with us.

April Benetollo
