We’d like to send a special thank you out to the Hartford Chapter, who recently held their annual Diaper Drive in support of My Sister’s Place. The Diaper Drive took place on March 21 and 29, and the Chapter was able to collect over 25,000 diapers!
My Sister’s Place is a local shelter and support organization for families who are homeless due to domestic violence, eviction, or unemployment, and serves approximately 1,200 people each year through its multiple programs. The diapers collected by this drive will go to help families in need throughout the area. On average, about 5,000-6,000 diapers are used monthly, and this drive accounts for almost half of their yearly need. Importantly, public assistance vouchers can only be used for food and not diapers or other necessities, so donating diapers is the equivalent of handing money directly to those in need.
The committee was able to secure donations from several key corporate sites including XL, Travelers, Willis Towers Watson, Insurity, AIX, Raymond Law Group, LLC, and Hanover. They hope to do even better next year!
Thank you to the Hartford Chapter for their wonderful effort in support of a good cause!

The first ever Women’s Leadership Event in Minneapolis was a huge success! Over 50 people registered for this event and were able to hear the experiences and insights of our dynamic panel of local women leaders.
When asked for feedback about the event, one attendee said, “I can’t say enough good things about this event. The venue was perfect, the speakers were fantastic, and the topics discussed were very relevant.” Others commented on how they were “very impressed with the moderator, and the quality of panelists” and admired how “all the speakers were very professional and honest with their experiences.”
Thank you to our speakers, Kristi Brownson, Linda Caruthers, and Lisa Lamm Bachman, and our moderator, Erin Singmaster, as well as the wonderful efforts of the Women’s Leadership Network Planning Committee and the North Central Steering Committee. This was an incredible event and we’re proud to be able to bring the Women’s Leadership Network to more and more people across the country.
Enjoy the photos and we hope to see you at a Women’s Leadership Network event soon!
