It’s Been An Honor:
A Note from Jen Oldham

Although I did not foresee my tenure at VWW ending so soon, the twists and turns of family life spoke otherwise, and I recently submitted my resignation. It was not an easy decision, but I am extremely proud of all we accomplished during the past two years and appreciate and value every relationship I’ve built during my time as Executive Director.

 I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported me and the organization during this time: staff, board members, and, of course, our partners and donors. Without you, the organization would not be as strong and vibrant as it is. I am honored to have led this incredible organization and will watch with excitement as it continues to be a leader, supporting and creating solutions to advance the economic potential of girls and women in Vermont. 

To the brilliant future of VWW,
Jen Oldham
Executive Director, Vermont Works for Women
