CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE CAMPAIGN
This March, AWF recognizes and celebrates both Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. We invite you to join us in supporting this year’s theme ‘Choose to Challenge’ by challenging the barriers women and girls continue to face.
We are building on the success of our COVID-19 relief funding by launching the 2021 Rebuilding Women Initiative. Our goal is to reach even more women and girls and to provide them with access to critical services and programs.
Rebuilding women will require the collective efforts of our AWF community of donors, volunteers, and friends – like you. We are grateful for your continued support to help change the lives of women and girls in Metro Atlanta.
The Atlanta Women’s Foundation is choosing to challenge the barriers women and girls face.
Will you join us?
Choose to Challenge: Rebuilding Women After COVID-19
To conclude our Women's History Month programming, AWF hosted a conversation with a panel of AWF grantee partners to discuss the impact of the pandemic on their organizations and the women and girls they serve as well as how to move forward to help rebuild. The conversation was moderated by Julie Finn, Executive Coach, Speaker, and Women’s Leadership Expert and AWF Inspire Atlanta alumna.

The Courage to Sit at the Head of the Table – AND yet…
Choosing to challenge any barrier a person faces takes courage. Taking the first step can be the most courageous one of all. AWF Board alumna Ann W. Cramer shares how she found the courage to find her seat at the table as the only woman on a public board and how having the courage to say “yes” to an opportunity to lead was only the first step.
