Via Jessica Nordhaus and Al Johnson-Kurts for Change The Story:
We have some news.
After a successful 7 years, the Change The Story initiative is coming to a close.
Change The Story was always envisioned as a time-limited initiative - one that would sunset after a certain number of years and accomplishments. We'll be proud to wrap up our work on March 31st having:
➢ generated increased awareness about gender inequities,
➢ produced previously unavailable Vermont data,
➢ provided a boost for VT organizations working hard to make change, and
➢ brought new folks on board as equity champions.
It was collaboration that really made this initiative tick. The three partners that make up CTS – the Vermont Women's Fund, Vermont Works for Women, and the Vermont Commission on Women – will continue to work together (along with many other organizations!) to fast-track gender equity in our state. Each partner will take a piece of Change The Story’s work and carry it forward. They will continue to meet regularly, elevate each other's work, and – along with YOU – expand our collective impact. We are sad to go, but we are bolstered in the knowledge that Vermonters will continue changing the story until we achieve gender equity in Vermont!
