Message from SI President Sharon Fisher
Greetings from Soroptimist International,
It is always a treat to share words with my fellow members in SIA. First, I want to welcome Past SIA President Tina Pan to the SI Board of Directors where I will be honored to continue working with her. As we start a new club year, club & region activities will be very different. Our meetings, projects and fundraising will all need some creativity given we are still living with COVID-19. Soroptimists will find a way to do that since we know that women and girls need our help now, more than ever.
The Soroptimist International Presidents Appeal was designed to bring some of the issues we are passionate about, into the light, and in doing so become informed on how to bring about change for the women and girls we serve. Following is a recording of the 1st webinar in a series titled “SI Voices”. “Exploring the Road to Equality” explained the appeal, introduced the coordinators, touched on the themes, projects underway and shared some lived experiences. This format will be followed throughout the series.
We hope you will be inspired to engage locally, regionally and internationally to learn more about how SI and SIA can influence global policy. It is wonderful to see so many of you online. Thanks so much for your support. Your generosity and engagement is what makes these appeals successful.
The next SI Voices Webinar will be September 10 and take a deeper look at Trafficking and particularly the Exploitation of Girls. Please join us.
