If this is philanthropy, why are we doing research?

Some might ask why we are doing research and the answer is simple: our mission is to help women take the next step toward personal, economic, and professional success in life. We are able to live our mission by collecting and analyzing this research data in order to increase our understanding of the phenomenon of helping women reach the next level of success. The results of the focus groups will help guide the Women in Motion grants that all members can vote on!

By supporting and leveraging collaboration, we envision a community where women:

  • Have the knowledge, opportunity, and self-determination to be economically secure
  • Have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and achieve their full potential
  • Learn about and experience the value of philanthropy and nonprofit leadership

WOMEN HAVE 3 MOUNTAINS TO CLIMB

Professional • Economic • Personal

Each with its own terrain and risks,  we have to conquer them individually, and seemingly, simultaneously to reach  the peak of our potential. Mountain climbers need training, tools, wellness, a plan, and a compass.
