Women of Worthington


Our Misson

To have a community of women who support and nurture one another and their community.

Our Goals

  • Create a sisterhood where women come together to grow, learn from and support one another.
  • Develop emerging female leaders to be confident and competent in their natural skills and strengthen their areas of needed growth as they grow gracefully and with confidence into leadership positions.
  • Create and promote a safe community for all to live in.

We strive to create a space for women where we honor:

  • Confidentiality: What is said here stays here. We do not gossip or try to bring one another down. We uplift therefore keep things confidential. 
  • Supportiveness: All of us are more able to walk in this world positively with our heads held high when others walk with us and encourage us.
  • Authenticity: We desire and encourage genuine, honest, heart-to-heart sharing; and care enough to lovingly speak the truth.
  • Compassion: We try to be present for one another; and, It is in the times of deep crisis, grief, and doubt that we need each other the most. That’s when we try to be there most for one another.
  • Community - We respect differences, and strive to be considerate of each other’s feelings, and be patient with everyone. We want to build a strong community

We accomplish our goals through:

  • Empowerment: Support, encouragement, education and training, in a community of women, can enable us to take charge of our lives and become agents of change as we advocate for ourselves, our families and our community.
  • Inclusiveness: We believe that diversity strengthens and enriches every aspect of our lives.
  • Collaboration: We will actively seek meaningful and productive partnerships with our neighbors, area service providers and other organizations to strengthen our mission and goals.
