Impact Examples: Girls Write Now


mayasnussbaumMaya commented, “If you’re lucky enough to have an encore-age candidate who wants to share years of wisdom, experience, and contacts, strongly consider diversifying your board and deepening the experience for all involved.”

Girls Write Now’s encore-age board members have impressive backgrounds as groundbreaking feminists, activists, journalists, editors, and leaders at large. These are women who embody the principles we instill in our girls: dedication to craft, determination to portray the lives of women and girls with honesty and brilliance, and commitment to fearless story-telling. Their careers and accomplishments are an inspiration to the girls we serve, our staff, and fellow board members.

They’ve contributed in many ways, chairing committees (board development, marketing and publicity to name a few), connecting us to high-profile authors and speakers, securing media coverage, and advising on many issues.
