New York Womens Foundation Celebrates 20 years!
Congratulations to the New York Womens Foundation for providing funding to women and girls organizations for 20 years. The NYWF will celebrate with a breakfast bright and early Thursday morning including awards and presentations by notable women including: Dolores C. Huerta, Co-Founder of the United Farm Workers Union, Abigail E. Disney, Founder and President of the Daphne Foundation, Whoopi Goldberg, Mira Nair and Rosita Romero, Executive Director of the Dominican Women’s Development Center.
All that sounds good to me, but I am mostly looking forward to talking with the other NYWF grantees, which this year include some of my favorite NYC girls' programs including Sistas on the Rise, Girls for Gender Equity, and the Sadie Nash Leadership Program.
