Spring is in the air. As we tiptoe into the season of rejuvenation and rebirth, we experience a burst of colour and vitality. As flowers bloom and trees awaken, the air fills with the sweet scent of new beginnings.

In honor of International Women’s Day, we want to recognize the WBII Board’s incredible and considerable contributions to our organisation: Deborah Valentine, Chair; Lisa Hall, Treasurer; Natalie Carstens, Secretary; Moran Greenwald; Anna Molnár and Charlene Lambert. Their efforts support our dynamic community of women. Their dedication and determination have helped shape an environment in which support, empowerment and solidarity flourish. Together, we celebrate their contributions and raise a toast to them this month.

As nature awakens, let’s cultivate an inclusive environment in which every voice thrives, fostering a vibrant and equitable community. This season, let’s plant seeds of kindness, nurture diversity and blossom together as a community.

Here’s to a vibrant and inclusive spring ahead!
