EWG members and guests had the privilege to hear from Vice-President Anna Calcagno. She shared the fantastic accomplishments of the Board members this year with the leadership of President Katherine Coffman, working diligently through the challenges of the pandemic while continuing to connect women and senior leaders using virtual environments to provide monthly programs.
Following Ms. Calcagno’s remarks, EWG Nominating Committee Chair and Past President Shoshana Grove, along with committee members and Past Presidents the Honorable Nancy Harvey Steorts and Ana B. Hinojosa proudly introduced the 2021-2022 EWG Officer candidates.
The Officer candidates shared their insights on being intentional in supporting and connecting women across government, building a stronger future within EWG following in the footsteps of the founding members, and mentoring future leaders aspiring to senior executive positions.
Past President Ana B. Hinojosa read the numerous accolades of keynote speaker the Honorable Nancy Harvey Steorts. Ms. Steorts enthusiastically outlined the history, mission, and success of EWG and the power of making connections, working hard, and making a difference and a legacy. The Officer candidate presentations and the keynote speech inspired continued conversation regarding how EWG is a golden opportunity to network with peers, create long lasting friendships, bring in leaders from the highest levels of government, and how it can be a catalyst for success in government.
