Giving Tuesday

We're sure you've heard of Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving, considered to be the beginning of the holiday shopping season.  And you've probably heard of Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving, a day created by the marketing community to encourage people to shop online. 

What Is Giving Tuesday?

In 2012, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation began a movement by creating a national day of giving to kick off the holiday giving season.  The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving designated as Giving Tuesday, is intended to be a response to the commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season.  It is a day to bring the public back to what the holiday season is all about, "Giving to Others"and providing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season and inspire action around charitable giving.

Why Support WIE on Giving Tuesday?

Women's Inter-Cultural Exchange (WIE) is a non-profit organization, dedicated toward "Building Trust Across Race and Culture".  Over our 8-year existence, we have sponsored town halls, multicultural conferences, small group cross-cultural chats, knowledge seminars, special events and since 2010 sponsored a mentoring program for young college women about to enter the workforce called Mentoring Across Difference.

We are approaching our 10th Anniversary in 2016 and have many events planned leading up to this momentous occasion. You will hear more about these soon!

Roberta HarperThe Women’s Inter-Cultural Exchange started off 2013 with new Board Chair, Roberta (Bert) Harper. Bert is one of two Vision 2020 National Delegates from North Carolina and has been integral in the WIE-Vision 2020 partnership to continue and expand the Mentoring Across Difference Program. Recently retired from Bank of America, as a Business Support Executive leading the Program Management Office for the Advisory Growth & Development Group, Bert is heavily involved, not only with WIE but the Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council.

Monique Stamps Kavita Gupta

The Board of Directors also welcomes Monique Stamps, the second Vision 2020 National Delegate from North Carolina, and a Peer Advocate at Disability Rights & Resources, and Kavita Gupta, a Community Leader. Recently, Kavita worked as a Senior Vice President for Bank of America after being a Business Development and Client Relationship Management for Perkins & Will.

Thank you to all of our Board Members for your commitment to building trust across race and culture!
