The Women Give Impact Event was an informative and fun membership meeting, with about 60 women from WGSD and the four nonprofit grant partners in attendance. There was a “mix and mingle” time followed by a short introduction to Women Give San Diego and the work of the Community Engagement Team, as well as an introduction to our four new grant partners: Casa Cornelia, Casa de Amparo, MANA de San Diego and UCSD Center Community Health Refugee Unit. Afterward, the attendees circulated for 15 minutes at a time to tables of the four grant partners, where they got a closer look at the amazing work being done that WGSD is helping to fund. The grant partners shared all about their work, updated WGSD members on current opportunities to get involved, and answered attendee questions in a candid and personal way. The food was delicious, prepared and catered by CocinaArtesanal. Many thanks to AB Bernstein for sharing their beautiful office space with us!
