Hello and Happy New Year!
I hope that you enjoyed a peaceful and happy holiday season and are all set to enjoy a terrific 2022.  
Your Women Executives Board of Directors continues to Reimagine how to leverage technology and in-person gatherings as part of the WE experience this year.  We are working to continually Refine our value proposition and consider new ways of engaging.  And, we invite you to Return to WE and to one another so that our culture remains rich, diverse and vibrant.  It is a true privilege to serve as your President this year and with the talented servant leaders on our Board.   So that you may hear their voices and have a greater understanding of your Board's perspectives, I've invited several leaders to reflect on our accomplishments from 2021 and the path forward in 2022.
