I can’t get over the number of young energetic women at this meeting! Kudos to all the work you’ve done to move WIO forward. It’s as relevant as ever to give women a special place where they can be reaffirmed and reassured. This is the safe place where that can happen. Keep up the great and important work you all do. I’m a big fan!
