International Women's Friendship Month and NFBPWC

By President Megan Shellman-Rickard

Heading into our second year of the NFBPWC 2022-2024 term, our Board of Directors, leaders at all levels, and members have a myriad of accomplishments from our first 12 months! Each member has their own path in this organization and a space to share their experiences and enthusiasm for empowering women with people from around the nation and the world.

As a member of NFBPWC for over 10 years, I have made countless friendships with members from around the world. It is inspiring to work with people from across the globe as we continue an uphill battle for women’s equity. As we engage with one another and connect, we do create a unique community in which we can make a difference as we create friendships. I personally invite each of you to reach out to me and other leaders in our organization. Let’s take the time to get to know one another and build friendships that will support the ideals that we hold dear for women’s rights globally. We are stronger together as we craft these bonds of friendship.
