February 2017

February 7, 2017

Hi, all!

It’s February 2017!  February is a month for valentines, American Heart month (which is very appropriate for valentines), and black history month.  I recently went to see the movie, “Hidden Figures.”  It’s about three African-American women who helped put Americans into space.  I saw what they had to endure at work during the era of “white/colored” bathrooms, drinking fountains and coffee pots.  That was not a good time in our nation’s history.  I thought how they really must have loved the work they did to put up with this.  These were amazing women.  One even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  Next time I complain about anything regarding my working conditions, I’ll think of these women.  I look forward to hearing our speaker for February talk about workplace attitudes and our core values. Leonard Bundy will tell us about “core-mance” (instead of romance), so we can all love our jobs a little more. I hope you can join us at Irina’s on February 16 to hear him and have a nice evening out with a great group of women.  RSVP at http://www.mwniowa.org/calendar.

See you there!

Joyce Whipps, President
