Pivoting during COVID-19: Despite this setback, we are still committed to serving our community, especially our female community members, so that our community can continue to thrive in any aspect of their professional and personal lives. In response to the current situation, we’ve implemented our continuity plan to engage our female community. We are proud to launch a new virtual learning and connecting space sessions of the Virtual Power Hour Series.
We want our female community to continue to lean in with our organization for support, connection with other women, and access to new skills and resources. This online platform will allow our community to continue creating a mentorship or peer network circle to share ideas, offer support, or seek advice.
Prior to COVID-19, one out of five individuals have suffered from loneliness. This number has increased dramatically during this time (Time Magazine- Anxiety Edition 2020 ). One of the cures for loneliness is finding a ritual that is intentional and repeated for individuals to be seen, heard, and valued. One way to do that is to join interactive connection activities to connect and communicate.
We believe, we are the anchor of connection for our female’s community to continue to be seen, heard, and valued during this uncertainty. Now, our Virtual Power Hour Series Session is our new way of doing business at Women of Toledo. So, find your peer network group, the topic of interest, and join us online.
