This morning, RPJ Partner Helen D. “Heidi” Reavis joined fellow members of the Women’s City Club of New York at Nasdaq to ring the opening bell in honor of WCC’s rebranding as Women Creating Change and the launch of its five-step civic engagement program across the city.
Founded in 1915, Women’s City Club of New York historically convened Manhattan-based women to promote civic and political engagement, education and social welfare through research and policy. In recent years, WCC has moved away from its traditional membership structure in an effort to expand its reach and become a more inclusive organization, welcoming and advocating for civic engagement across all five boroughs and embracing a new vision: “All women have the power to be changemakers to create a more equitable New York City.” Its new name, Women Creating Change, was adopted to reflect the organizational change.
Ms. Reavis is Chair of the Board of WCC was joined at Nasdaq to celebrate the new name and program launch by the organization’s President and CEO Carole J. Wacey and Vice Chair Deborah Martin Owens, as well as representatives of CUNY and The Grace Institute, among others.
