In this current climate where complacency, inaction, and silence are detrimental to our collective wellbeing, the Board of Directors of the Women on the Move Network organization reaffirms its commitment to diversity and inclusivity, and pledges to strive for justice based on truth in our programs and in our actions. We also recognize that we can and will do more, and take steps towards meaningful, forward-looking, and action-oriented strategies that will address racial unity and racial justice in all our activities and curriculum.
Our mission and work toward gender equality has always been, and will continue to be, within the broader context of equity in all areas of human endeavor. And now, we will intentionally highlight and accentuate the dismantlement of racism and ethnic oppression within all aspects of our curriculum.
Dr. Wilma Ellis was a trailblazer, a visionary, and a true champion for women's empowerment. She dedicated her life to making change and building up women, and her legacy will continue to inspire future generations.
Her creation and founding of the Women on the Move Network was a testament to her unwavering commitment to helping women achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Through her work, Dr. Ellis empowered countless women to take charge of their lives and pursue their dreams.
Dr. Ellis's impact on the world will be felt for years to come. Her passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to her work were truly inspiring, and her legacy will live on through the countless lives she touched. Though she is no longer with us, her spirit will continue to guide and inspire us all.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Ellis's family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time. She will be deeply missed, but her impact on the world will never be forgotten.

Provide girls ages 9 to 17 with an on-going series of age-appropriate experiences designed to give them tools, strategies and understandings which will help the girls make good decisions, build confidence, choose healthy activities and relationships, explore new ideas, make friends and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment.
As a result of continuous participation in the WHO'S YOUR HERO? Program, girls will internalize the core values of respect, integrity, nobility of spirit and a belief in the equality of women and men, and will reflect those values and beliefs in their behavior, attitudes, use of language and personal choices through the teen years and on into young adulthood. They will take their place as strong, confident young women who will be contributing members of a peaceful society.
These topic-centered sessions engage interested women in self-discovery and in discussion and solution-seeking on issues and concerns that many women encounter in life.
