I have been involved with NCRW for many years as a participant in their programs, partner, volunteer and advisor and have been continually impressed by the quality of their work and the high standards of their team. I am particularly inspired by their new President and the energy and expertise she is bringing to the leadership of the organization. My deepest involvement has been with their leadership development program for emerging women leaders in the nonprofit sector. I have been tremendously impressed by the caliber and diversity of the young women they have attracted to this program, and I believe that the curriculum of the program is thoughtfully designed and highly effective in supporting these women in advancing their leadership.
I volunteered my coaching and leadership development expertise to support NCRW's women's leadership fellowship program, so what I know about the organization comes from that experience and perspective. The staff are a joy to work with, providing clear and timely information about expectations and goals, while still being incredibly open and collaborative. The leadership fellows as a class were extraordinarily committed and cool. There are not enough programs offering leadership development for women in the middle stages of their careers, and this one is well executed and sorely needed. Aine is a new leader for the organization, and so far I've been very impressed with her presence and guidance. Overall, can't say enough good things about the staff and their good work in the world.
