Circles Inclusion Statement
Women’s Fund Circles is intentional about creating a community that builds bold and affirming spaces to create authentic relationships and develop leadership for individuals that face gender-based oppression (this includes cis and trans women as well as nonbinary people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experiences of women.)
Circles members can expect:
- Leadership opportunities
- Project work that advances the mission of the Women’s Fund and your own personal passions
- Relationships that will last well beyond the three years of active membership
- To serve as an ambassador for women, girls and anyone facing gender-based oppression in the community through work with the Women’s Fund
Circles members serve a three-year term with applications opening in July. Each class is greater than 15 but not larger than 55 members. The attendance requirement for membership is to attend 75% of the monthly meetings, committee meetings as needed, participation in a group project, and attendance in least two Women’s Fund events a year. In addition we require a $100 donation to the Women’s Fund, some scholarships are available.
“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
Circles members are selected for three-year terms based on community involvement, contributions in their workplace and their vision for all women in Omaha.
