Local Leader Selected as WLW Fellow
By: Women's Fund of Rhode Island
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."
Women's Fund of Rhode Island Board President, Bev Wiley, noted "The recent pandemic, economic crisis, and renewed awareness around racial inequities have tested Kelly's leadership skills. She did not miss a beat and the organization is thriving as a result. Through participation in this fellowship, I have no doubt that Kelly will be able to bring WFRI to even higher achievements."
