A wise colleague told me this week that she doesn’t make resolutions, she creates a theme for the year. So here is our theme for the year; GET THE MESSAGE OUT!
Housing foreclosures, poverty at an all time high, inflation outpacing income and women and people of color clearly hurting the most: it is urgent that we immediately, loudly and with great conviction, address the issues of poverty and discrimination.
It wakes me up at night, the drive to get the message out – this works! Low income women of color are great assets which are underutilized. The looming deficit in California hangs heavy but it is unnecessary.
Women’s Initiative is watching our economic return on investment results go up every year. Every year we are more effective in helping women turn a small investment in their dreams into big returns for the local economy.
Want to change society? Invest in a low income woman entrepreneur and you can turn the tide of an entire economy!
