LEADERCAST WOMEN 2021 RIPPLE EFFECT
February 11, 2021
The Ripple Effect... one action leading to impactful reactions that reverberate throughout space and time. This effect is especially true in leadership. Leaders carry great responsibility to act with foresight, knowing their decisions can affect those well beyond their role and network.
This event is hosted by the Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce.

SUSAN B. ANTHONY WOMEN OF INFLUENCE AWARDS
The Susan B. Anthony – Women of Influence Awards Committee made the difficult decision to not hold our dinner in 2021. While we know that some people would attend in order to support this long-running event that honors women who serve the Kenosha community, we didn’t think moving ahead with an in-person gathering would be fair to the winners.
But, all is not lost! While we aren’t having an in-person event, we are still supporting nonprofits and non-traditional students, so we still need your support! Think of all the money you’ll save on NOT buying a dress, NOT buying new shoes, NOT buying new pantyhose, and NOT buying cocktails. Oh, and don’t forget about NOT buying silent auction items! You can put your savings to good use by buying a $50 ticket (or two) to the non-event and knowing that you are supporting a long history of giving back!
This year, we will be supporting these five nonprofit organizations’ projects:
ELCA Outreach Center: Feminine Hygiene Packs
Kenosha Achievement Center: Early Intervention Program
Shalom Center: Bus Tokens
Society's Assets: Taking Care of You Program
United Way: Imagination Library
We are committed to supporting women's education and are proud to announce that we are also supporting these non-traditionally aged female students through $1,000 scholarships:
Thank you for supporting the Susan B. Anthony – Women of Influence Awards. We’ll keep you apprised as to how you can further support SBA-WOI in 2021. Be sure to mark your calendar for Friday, March 4, 2022, so you'll be at the next Susan B. Anthony - Women of Influence Awards Dinner!
