Episode 85: The Power of Women Giving as One with Wendy Steele

Wendy Steele reminds us that this country started as men being the breadwinners and women staying at home to raise the kids. When women had more time on their hands, they volunteered, rolled up their sleeves, and did the work. We do so much better, and we get so much more out of our generosity when we give using time, talent, and treasure.

Wendy goes deep into the five focus areas of Impact 100: arts, culture & preservation, education, environment & animal welfare, family, and health & wellness. There is an open and transparent process to get a cause approved by Impact 100.

Plus, Wendy reveals how we can do our most significant work by having a diverse group around us.
