We are thrilled that our founder and executive director, Andrea J. Fonte Weaver, has been selected to join the Nonprofit Commonwealth Forum for Women Executive Directors and CEOs, a program of The Commonwealth Institute (TCI). Since becoming incorporated in 2012, Bridges Together has experienced so much growth – our staff has more than doubled, Bridges programs are in about 30 communities and we have partnered with the Massachusetts Association of Councils on Aging to offer professional development events around the state. Of course, rapid growth also comes with new peaks to scale, so the opportunity for Andrea to participate in this forum is a fantastic one which will give her the tools to hone her skills, meet other women leading nonprofits and spread the word about Bridges! TCI’s goal – “to help each other learn, grow and succeed as women business owners and business leaders” – is music to our ears, and we are pleased to align with this organization.
