According to Global Grassroots Mobilization USA Committee member Baylan Megino, “WWCA encourages and trains women to shine in leadership positions. What sets WWCA apart are its unflinching, compassionate acknowledgement of the many difficult challenges that women have faced, and its efforts to empower one to thrive beyond these experiences – to become the leader you are meant to be in the world.” The awards ceremony is part of WWCA Founder Ragne Sinikas’ vision for the women of the world. She encourages every woman to step in to create her own vision. “Every generation gets an opportunity to make a difference, but the people of that generation have to seize that opportunity,” she explains. “Do you want to make a difference by doing something that makes a difference with people who make a difference at a time that makes a difference? I invite you to become one of the next World Women of Vision! See, believe, feel, say, and do things that others don’t. See you March 2022!”
