About the Group
“I’m delighted to be a part of the Circles group; in a few short months it has already been very stimulating for me and I know there is tremendous potential for us to make a positive impact.” – Circles member Angela Cooper
The Women’s Fund Circles is a network of professional women passionate about the future and well-being of women and girls in our community. Circles supports the vision and mission of the Women’s Fund of Omaha, which serves to identify critical issues, fund innovative solutions and lead change for women and girls in our community.
Circles serves to create relationships among women who will be the next generation of leaders and doers in our community.
Circles is a three year program and is comprised of roughly 75 members total; approximately 25 per class. At any given time, there are three classes: members who are in their 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year.
Consisting of monthly meetings as well as social activities and class service projects, Circles provides women with opportunities to build professional and personal relationships and learn about issues affecting women and girls in Omaha, as well as connect with female leaders throughout our community.
