On New Year’s Eve of 2013, the JWI office joined in the perennial discussion of personal goals and resolutions for the coming year – and how we were going to stick to them! CEO and Executive Director Lori Weinstein reminded the staff that turning the calendar to 2014 was also a great opportunity to consider our goals and resolutions for a successful and fulfilling career.
A week into the new year, some JWI staff members are sharing their professional resolutions to fill 2014 with positive experiences and growth:
Lori Weinstein, CEO/Executive Director:
In 2014, I look forward to seeing JWI pursue new partnerships, and nurture the ones we already have – like we did in 2013 with Sigma Delta Tau and the Girls Achieve Grapeness! campaign. That’s how we’re raising a new generation of leaders to break the cycle of violence against women.
My goal for 2014 is to sustain our programs into the future with new funding, while we fulfill the grants that are supporting our work now.
Danielle Cantor, Design and Communications Manager:
This year I want to see JWI quoted more often and more visibly – like the authority and innovator that we are!
Miri Cypers, Senior Policy and Advocacy Specialist:
My New Year’s resolution for JWI is to keep expanding our Young Women’s Leadership Network, and host a financial literacy series for young professional women that teaches asset-building and investment skills. For advocacy, I want to build support in Congress for the International Violence Against Women Act.
Sari Weintraub, Development and Chapter Services Coordinator:
I want to make sure that our local ‘legacy’ chapters stay engaged and feel more connected to the national programs that they help support.
Dinah Douglas, Communications and Website Coordinator:
In 2014, I want to create a more active and inviting online presence for JWI, to spread the word about our work empowering women and girls farther and wider.
