On the Bright Side

Thank you for joining our May "On the Bright Side" virtual session as we highlighted the work of Dwell Oprhan Care, Merrill W. Linn Land & Waterways Conservancy, and SMILE.

Save the date for our next "On the Bright Side" session on August 15th at 12pm. Join us to hear from organizations impacting the lives of women and children across the region as we reflect on the Women's Giving Circle mission to empower, connect, and inspire. Register for the August 15th session here.

"On the Bright Side" is a casual, online lunch break created as a space to pause from our busy lives and connect with Women's Giving Circle members and other local women. These fun, interactive sessions include speakers and topics centered around mental health, positivity, building community, and collective impact.
