Together, We Can Achieve Anything We Want
Women’s roles in society have drastically changed in the last 50 years. We are not living in the same world as our mothers did – they made sure of that. Our mothers pushed the boundaries and made the sacrifices so that we, their daughters, could go further and have more opportunities, and in turn build a better society. Thanks to their advocacy, women today hold leadership positions in almost every profession.
What hasn’t changed over time though is our deep empathy. We still tend to be the caregivers for our families and our community. Women have always been the leaders of social change, the defenders of those less fortunate, the helpers and givers of our society. The difference today is that we have the power and means to effect positive change more than ever before.
A small group of dynamic and dedicated professionals formed Women in Action (WIA) to unite women from our community in the shared philanthropic interest of improving healthcare in Northwestern Ontario. This is an active giving circle focused not just on fundraising, but on deciding what healthcare priorities mean most to us.
