Programs: The core mission goals of ndwn are accomplished through communication, increased public awareness and organizational capacity. Our efforts to assess the needs of north dakota women were accomplished with the aid of focus group research conducted in 2007 and additional focus groups with middle and high school students. Ndwn sends out quarterly newsletters and email alerts to members and potential members providing updates on legislation, events, latest research and other issues of interest. Ndwn has built a membership of over 200 members. Ndwn has created strong partnerships with women's organizations by assisting in organizing events for women across the state of north dakota.
The Women's Network is one reason I'm proud to live in North Dakota. The organization is an invaluable resource. ND Women's Network supports women of all ages and keeps all of us up-to-date on important topics and events. The Director is generous, hardworking, and incredibly wise. Thank you to the ND Women's Network for all you do for North Dakota.
I have enjoyed being part of the network. I have renewed friendships that had been lost over the years and had an opportunity to meet new friends. It is difficult in a state as big as ND with so few people to have regular contact with other women who share my interest in expanding the role of women in public life and want to see women's issues addressed and improve the lives of ND women. Through the network we can connect and find ways to move the agenda forward.
The feminist first friday events are great and the annual conference is a source of new energy. The first lobby day was an eye opener for legislators. I hope we can continue to find wasy to sustain the organization.
