from Teri H.

As we come to the close of a Zonta Year, and look forward to Spring, New Officers, and new beginnings, I would like to thank you for the opportunity you afforded me in the last 2 years to be president. Your Board-Renee, Helen, Betty, Kathy and Dianne have been wonderful, hard working and supportive. We have our own Betty E. headed to Australia to represent us at the National Conference; and a great group of Pikes Peak Zontians representing us in Pueblo at our Area Meeting the first weekend in April. There are huge plans in the works for the GLASS SLIPPER BALL-under the lead of chairperson, Laura S. And Welcome to our newest, member Lorie W.!

Hope to see everyone at our April Meeting at the Warehouse Restaurant! We have a great speaker, elections, and a number of important topics to cover!

Big changes in our workforce and communities offer big opportunities, yet we face divides of historic proportions. To reap rewards in the world as it is today, we must transform fear and embrace diversity. Great leaders have always been diversity leaders: those who harness the strength in differences with the power of shared ideals. Jody's insights will challenge, entertain and inspire you to build your own diversity leadership skills with "better angels" that include courage, compassion and a commitment to full inclusion.
