“The question is not how to survive, but how to thrive with passion, compassion, humor, and style.”
The impact of the pandemic has been especially far-reaching for women. Hearing from women in leadership about their learnings and challenges, and supporting one another feels more important than ever. This #WomensHistoryMonth we honor some of the many women across the Network whose work helps create a future without limits for students and families. Below PIE Network leaders share women they admire, advice, and leadership resources.
Please check back as we continue to add leaders in the coming days.
