PROVIDENCE, R.I. - March 22, 2021 - PRLog -- PROVIDENCE, RI – Women's Fund of Rhode Island is pleased to announce that Kelly Nevins, Chief Executive Officer, has been selected as a fellow for the prestigious Women Leaders for the World (WLW) program. The 12 month fellowship is a transformational leadership training, coaching and advising fellowship for women leaders solving some of the world's most intractable problems in nonprofits, social entrepreneurship, media, politics/government, and business. It is designed to empower women leaders to harness their powers of creativity and connection, transforming their local impact into waves of global change.

In endorsing Nevins as a candidate for the program, Elizabeth Barajas-Roman, President and CEO of the Women's Funding Network, had this to say, "(Her) work and insights were key to increasing the resilience and capacity of our network. Ms. Nevins has made a lasting impact in her state that will improve the lives of over half a million women."
