The Check-In Chat started at the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown as a way for members to keep in touch, since due to the lockdown, they couldn’t meet in person.  The weekly 90-minute Zoom calls, held on Sunday afternoons and hosted by board member Tessa Bell, were instantly popular and the format proved to be a comfortable one for the expression of thoughts and ideas. 

Each week’s topic evolves organically in the first few minutes of the call, giving everyone a chance to contribute.  Topics have included:

  • connecting and sharing strategies for surviving and thriving in isolation
  • the new normal and how we, the wise women, can guide the change
  • what’s different about our world now and what we can do to help
  • the wisdom of women to heal a broken world.
  • putting the art back in business
  • what does the future hold

Members find the chats an oasis of hope in a difficult time, a dependable venue to connect with other professional women and share information in a quickly changing economic and cultural landscape.
