W2W Leadership Initiative’s March Updates
Updates on WILMA's Women to Watch Leadership Initiative
WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative has updates to share as we continue to work on the effort’s core mission of helping develop more women leaders in our area. Here’s what we’ve been up to with various W2W Leadership Initiative programs and what’s coming up next:
Newcomer Networking: WILMA’s Women to Watch program partnered with The Inspiration Lab for an online networking event, geared toward those new to the area. Networking has been challenging this year but especially for those who moved here recently and are still trying to get the lay of the land. Representatives from several women’s and business groups hosted small-group discussions during the Zoom talk last month, sharing networking advice and making connections.
Leadership Institute: Our advisory board last month selected members of the 2021 WILMA’s Leadership Institute. Keep an eye out for an announcement about the new class. Orientation kicks off in April, with monthly leadership training through December.
WILMA Leadership Email: If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to read WILMA’s Monday emails, which focus on leadership topics and profiles.
Getting Social: We now have social media pages for WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative, where you can find the latest info about leadership program announcements, applications, and updates on women who have been involved with W2W. We’ll continue to post major announcements on WILMA magazine’s existing social media channels, but for the full details as well as other leadership resources, follow us on the new pages at facebook.com/WILMAsWomenToWatch and on Instagram @WILMAsWomentoWatch.
