The Impact of Women’s Foundations Coast to Coast.

Women’s Foundations are catalyst’s for change and social change is certainly not for the faint of Heart. However, give a woman a voice and a choice and she’ll always rise up to the job at hand with the strongest of hearts.

This is the renewed conviction and sense of purpose I felt when I walked out of the “Women’s Fund Convening 2016″ in San Luis Obispo, Thursday July 14th.

Like minded women from Women’s Fund organizations up and down the Central Coast of California came together to connect missions, share ideas, and develop actionable solutions, to advance gender equity and economic, social, emotional, and physical wellbeing for all women.

Thank you to activist Tracy Gary for sharing her wisdom, educating us and facilitating our discussions for positive change.

It might start with a village, but in truth, it will take tribes of fearless women of every creed, race and age to  step up with compassion and commitment to develop, fund and implement sustainable solutions.

The good news is that women are already making a difference everyday in the USA through organizations such as The Women’s Foundation.  Only through collaboration and support can we continue to build a better world where not only women, but whole communities can thrive.

As Bertie Elliot said in a recent interview we filmed with her…

“I ask each of you to look into your own hearts and ask …how can I help?

Thanks to members of the Women’s Fund of: Santa Barbara, Monterey, Northern Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Kern county and Ojai.

Own your choice to make a difference and feel the difference it makes not only in another life, but in yours too. Diane xo
