At Story Circle Network, we have always known that women’s life stories matter. Throughout nearly a quarter century of our history, we’ve been committed to helping you tell yours. We have renewed our passion and commitment to lift up the lives of all women through the healing force of story.
Board members, donors, authors, writing contributors, readers, and other women come together at Story Circle Network for the purpose of shaping the activities of our non-profit. Each woman brings a unique and varied perspective. These perspectives wrap us in a richness and depth that allow us to continue to share and appreciate the stories of, among others, women who have been historically marginalized.
At this time, we are striving to become a more diverse organization. But diversity alone, with an emphasis on numbers, does not create equity or the enhanced organizational climate of inclusion that we seek to create over time at Story Circle Network. Our inclusion focus emphasizes outcomes of diversity. We are actively seeking interested women writers to join forces with us as we embark on this transformative journey.
Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
Our eyes have been opened wide. We know we have much to learn. We at Story Circle Network will take this opportunity to “do better” to address diversity, equity, and inclusion within the organization in more intentional and deliberate ways. We actively stand in solidarity with our members and all women and girls who face oppression of any kind, or who may wish to simply share their unique stories with others. We are committed to making this a priority, and we sincerely hope you will join our efforts.
Please know that Story Circle Network is listening and working with you towards a society of love, justice, and respect for all.
