Happy Fall! We hope you had a great summer and that you are continuing to connect to and learn about yourself, each other and the world around you in the most positive ways!

With all that's going on these days, it's important to remember that we must come together more than ever as women, men, and as human beings of every description to recognize our unity and celebrate our diversity in every area of life. 

As the 'official' season of gratitude is nearly upon us, TWM wants to thank you for being part of what we do and have done to promote this concept in unique and creative ways throughout the past ten years.

Since our last TWM eNewsletter  we had TWM's 2011 World of Wellness, celebrated TWM's 10th Anniversary and had a sold-out  Visioning Workshop

TWM is also proud to have partnered with and promoted several of our sister organization's programs such as Women's Leadership Exchange, Paradigm Shift, Womensphere, Woodhull Institute, In Good Company, Motherhood Outloud, and Fearless Factor 2011 Women of the Year Awards. 

Coming up sooner than we can believe is TWM's 2011 Virtual Holiday Bazaar, so see the box below for more information on how to participate.  In the new year so far we're working on an event with the Arab-American Family Support Center, a screening of the film Connected, and of course our popular Visioning Workshops.

We will also continue to offer you a daily dose of TWM through our blog, CHICKS ROCK! , the place for each of you to read about, comment on and even write your own post about topics relating to diversity and personal growth. (Be sure to subscribe via email or feed - and if you have your own blog, let us know so we can cross-post and send you some
Link Love!

In the meantime, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter  which is the best way to stay connected to each other and all that we do!

TWM is extremely proud of the opportunities we have offered for women to learn more about themselves and the world around them, and how our website,TWM eNewsletters, and CHICKS ROCK! enable women to further connect to themselves each other and the world around them.

If you have been on our list for some time and enjoy reading these eNewsletters, or if you are just learning about TWM and support who we are and what we do and would like to see it continue and grow - please show it with your financial support .  

We hope to bring you as much education, inspiration and motivation as possible to make the best of your life, so please consider becoming a member or donating at the highest level possible to help us keep on keepin' on!

As always we want to thank all of our
 past, present and future supporters - we would not be here without you!
 

Cheers!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out this summer to celebrate TWM's 10th Anniversary with a chic, fun Moroccan themed fundraiser at Katra Lounge!

  We acknowledged every attendee's connection to and participation in TWM as well as honored Kekla Magoon, Mara Leonardi, Scott Damashek, Sally Mercedes for their special contribution over the past decade. 

 

It was a fabulous evening that raised critical funds and was a shining example of the type of unique, empowering  experiences we create at all our events!
