Since our last bi-monthly newsletter we had the sad news of the death of one of our Co-founders, Katharine Whitehorn CBE. Our Vice Chair, Susan Young, created a joyful memorial. The anecdotes shared highlighted the importance of women supporting each other, mentoring, acknowledging our worth and deep friendships.
In a year that many will remember for its hardship and loss, at IWF UK we can reflect on how our members paused, pivoted and innovated to strengthen the bonds between us, and to provide additional support and resources.
As the nights draw in and the restrictions on our personal and professional lives due to the pandemic continue, the importance and value of connection, sharing, support and celebration of our achievements are even more important to our well-being and sense of opportunity.
We hope you are safe and well during this latest phase of the crisis, and that you are able to enjoy the summer.
We very much hope you and your families are safe and well and managing through these extreme times. We also hope you've enjoyed and benefited from the array of virtual events produced by IWF UK and the global IWF organisation over the past two months.
