A Grateful Note
Dear Friends & Followers,
2014 has proven to be rich with gifts and abundant lessons. We are grateful for both. Part of what makes this organization so special is the work we do behind the scenes to empower women to live their best life, and to amplify the work that you all do every day on behalf of others. All of that is to say that while we do appreciate the light that has been shone on our work, our greatest pride is taken in being a wizard behind the curtain. As we enjoy the remaining days of this year with our families and friends, we want to thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for all of the support and love you have shown us in 2014. It’s hard to believe we are approaching our 2nd year anniversary!
As we usher in 2015, we want to share some news that we’ve been keeping under wraps for a bit. With the launch of the next issue of RISE, you will meet new contributors, hear about the hottest and most dynamic events for women in 2015, and meet new Women on the RISE. We will also launch an all new website as our 2nd Anniversary approaches! The new site is designed to engage you, and allow you to connect directly with one another. Our intention is to provide even greater access to the women who have made their mark here at WWR, and those who are out in your communities working hard to advance women in every way. Last, you will also see a growing dialogue surrounding what’s happening for and to women around the world. From Boko Haram to education, Sharia Law to the 2016 election pool.
Finally, we want to thank you for your constant and enthusiastic communication with us! Your stories and suggestions inspire us. We appreciate every referral and each new client that has joined our coaching program. Our journey is, in large part, driven by your engagement. We want to invite you to continue to share your interest and passions with us, and look forward to the introductions that will be made in 2015. For your courage, and all you do for your communities, and women as a whole, we applaud you!
Joanna + Team RISE
