2. Winter 2021 Leadership Development Courses

This winter, there are many ways to lead and make an impact through WIN. You can show our people power when called upon to turnout to a big action- right from your living room, or write an email, meet with an public official. You can grow our power together by engaging new leaders. Or, you can grow our power through organizing money in the form of member dues or individual donors. May WIN be a vehicle for you to make your voice heard and make an impact in the world in 2021. 

We want to hear from you about how you want to lead, grow and learn with WIN in early 2021. PLEASE FILL OUT THE SURVEY!!!

This winter we also invite you to consider investing more deeply in your own learning and leadership through committing to one of the WIN 2021 COURSES IN LEADERSHIP.
