Alumnae Advisory Council: Meet the Crew!

Earlier this fall, we announced the formation of an Alumnae Advisory Council. Designed to help our board and staff review our programs, help to brainstorm new opportunities for learning and engagement and act as a voice for W2WM alumnae in various efforts, we know this group will help W2WM remain impactful and relevant, expand to meet new needs, and bring together all women in our community.  

With that, we are beyond excited to introduce our 2023 Alumnae Advisory Council!
