Dear Berkshire BPW Members and Friends,
Happy New Year!
We’re only a few weeks into 2022, and I’m sure many of you, like me, are already exercising the adaptability muscles we have all built over the last two years. Between new COVID variants, cold weather advisories, and recovering from the holiday season, “hanging in there” continues to be the norm for many of us. As life continues to throw curveballs, I want to remind you of our mission:
“to empower women to rise, eliminate barriers, and achieve our individual and collective ambitions”
Right now, we can achieve this by continuing to support each other, and by remembering that it is okay to ask others in our BBPW community for help. I encourage you to reach out to the women in your network when you are thinking of them, but also to not be afraid to ask for help and support when needed.
We have an exciting year planned, as our Scholarship program nears its annual kickoff in the Spring, our new Mentors and Mentees begin their work together, and our Programs team continues to set up expert speakers for our monthly meetings.
lease do not hesitate to reach out to me via email with your thoughts, ideas, or questions. It is through the feedback, suggestions, and creativity of our board and members that we are able to continue to adapt to best serve our members and community.
Thank you to all for your support and membership. I am looking forward to working with you all to make 2022 our best year yet, as we continue to have a positive impact on our community, as well as within our organization.
