About Two Local Organizations

The Investing in Girls Alliance is an outcome of the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth at Risk in the City of Worcester. IIGA is a consortium of state and local agencies, public school departments, non-profit organizations, state and local government and business professionals. Coming together to explore issues facing adolescent girls, and with financial support from the Women’s Initiative, a research report was developed to assess the concerns and needs of young girls in our area.

The Tri-Chairs include Iliana D’Limas, Elisa Lopez-Dobski, and Linda Cavaioli, who was a founding member of WWHP. The Honorary Chair is also a member of WWHP, The Honorable Harriette L. Chandler, Mass. State Senate. Their website is www.investingingirls.org

The Women’s Initiative of United Way of Central Mass. focuses on building, strengthening, and supporting the development of confident and safe adolescent girls. Under the guidance of Kate Myshrall and Kerry Conaghan, among other fantastic women, WI has some wonderful upcoming events, including a collaboration with WWHP, February 2011, and well-known girl advocate author Rachel Simmons in April. http://www.unitedwaycm.org/what_we_do/womens_initiative.htm
