All of you have played a role in this success and for all you have done, we salute you and THANK YOU for the important progress we have made in forwarding WIRE's mission to erase gender inequality that exists not only in the nation, but right here at home in Silicon Valley.
2020 has been a tough year, but as they say, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Women Helping Women WIRE for Women has a proven strategy and it works! WIRE has not stopped at the election itself. We recently hosted a virtual party to congratulate all the winners and give them tips on how to "Hit the Ground Running" followed by an event in mid-December on "Best Practices & Lessons Learned" based on the experiences of a wide variety of candidates
WIRE Salutes Retiring Incumbents!
Join WIRE for Women to celebrate your many years of public service and your accomplishments with your colleagues. We will engage in a conversation as you reflect on your time in office and think about “what’s next”. RSVP
Our focus in 2021 will be to increase the success of our Appointment Program and prepare for an even more successful Electoral Year in 2022.
Is this not the time for you to run for office? Are you too busy to be a volunteer? Then you might wish to support our efforts with a generous donation so we can reach and assist even more prospective candidates for both appointive and elected positions through our workshops, mentor program, website and social media. Please give whatever you can afford because every dollar allows us to identify and recruit more women. (WIRE does not fund individual candidates).
From the WIRE Board - THANK YOU for supporting women and our communities in 2020 and here's looking forward to 2021!
