Lead the Way: Sponsor Celebration 33
It has been a year of
transition for the Minnesota Women’s Consortium and we want to share our
excitement with you! You are invited to help us celebrate new leaders at
Celebration 33. Igniting the Spark: Fostering
New Leadership will be the theme of Celebration on Thursday, January
24, 2013, in the Great River Room at the Crown Plaza Riverfront, 11 East
Kellogg Boulevard, St. Paul, from 6:00-8:30 PM. In addition to networking and
dinner, we will spend the evening honoring groups and individuals who are doing
great work to mentor and empower new leaders for today and the future.
For 33 years, women and men working
for equity and justice have celebrated many achievements for women and girls in
Minnesota. While there is much to celebrate, there is still much work to do. Women
are the majority of people in poverty, underpaid by an average of 23% compared
to male workers, under-represented in elective office and corporate boardrooms,
too often subject to sexual assault and abuse, and without access to affordable
If the Minnesota Women’s
Consortium is going to continue improving the status of women and girls, we
need to ensure future leaders are ready—and your support is needed to do this. Our
goal is to raise $52,000 at Celebration 33—$10,000 more than was raised last
year. You can help us reach that goal by becoming a sponsor. Details on the
contribution levels are on the enclosed card.
Your generous support allows
the Minnesota Women’s Consortium to cultivate community and coalitions, share
information and resources, and build and sustain leadership for women and
girls. I am honored to follow in the footsteps of the great leaders who have
preceded me. My hope is to continue meeting the needs of our community as
effectively as possible and to find innovative ways to better serve our members
and supporters. In order to do this, the Minnesota Women’s Consortium must have
a sound financial base and a collective movement of organizations and
individuals working together for social change. Will you lead the way and
become a sponsor?
Our members and supporters
are the Minnesota Women’s Consortium. Together we are stronger.
