Winner’s Best Practice

48 hours before the deadline, our grant writer couldn’t submit the grant because the website was down. Ice cream arrived to commiserate with her and celebrate her hard work. In that moment, we didn’t live 3,000 miles away, it was as if we were in the same room facing the problem together. Celebrating wins - no matter how small - is a lived core value. While ice cream doesn’t solve everything, celebrating creates a culture of recognition. In a team of women, it is incredibly fulfilling to help one another appreciate the beauty each one brings to the table.
