Shifting to a Co-Director Leadership Model!

After a fiscal crisis just over a decade ago, our team got to work, thoughtfully reimagining an organizational structure that honors the collective wisdom of all stakeholders and fosters long-term sustainability. As a first step to diffuse power from traditional executive leadership roles, we spent years co-developing and finalizing our Cultural Praxis which was finally completed in 2014. Four years later, we engaged in a six-month process of brainstorming and consensus-building -- fleshing out our organizational DNA in our 2018 Theory of Change. This document, our North Star, outlined our mission, vision and strategies designed to ensure our work was grounded in justice, shared power and supportive of emerging leadership at all levels. As a continued embodiment of these visions and values, we are pleased to share an exciting shift in our current leadership structure. Effective July 1, 2021, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. will be transitioning into a Co-Director Leadership model. Mary Martinez, our former Associate Director, will be joining Jill Zawisza, former Executive Director, as Co-Directors.
