Advocacy in Action: Meet the KFW Board
Message from the KFW Board
Collaborating in support of the KFW mission, the current board includes a Communications Team, Board Development Team and Finances Team. This year the board focused on updating internal structures, supporting the KFW staff initiatives, and implementing policies that promote the health and well being of the Foundation. We supported Hopscotch House updates, Advancing Democracy Building Power for Women grant, and plans for artist residencies with Savannah Sipple and Carolyn Finney. We supported the KFW Equity and Access Plan that builds on our established priority populations and expands to include a comprehensive analysis our racial/cultural equity and access outcomes for all communications, program materials and workshops, internal and external process for grant and residency application and review, and data collection. Finally, we provided individual interviews on the KFW blog, so that KFW community members can witness our personal commitment to social justice in Kentucky.
As we welcomed new board members and said farewell to members who have transitioned out of their board terms, we were especially grateful for their contributions to the KFW mission. Their work will be treasured for many years to come. We will continue their legacy as we move together towards a vibrant future.
In Peace and Power,
the KFW Board
KFW Board Members Showcase “This I Believe”
At a recent retreat our wise and wonderful KFW Board spent time contemplating their role in sustaining the mission and values of KFW. Board members participated in a “This I Believe” exercise to reflect each person’s personal vision for KFW and how she could create connections with our community. No two statements were identical, but our word cloud pictured below provides an indication that our board shares one omnipresent goal.
