The 2020 Leading Women’s Society (2010 Class)
SisterLove, Inc is proud to announce the induction of the newest members of the 20/20 Leading Women’s Society. The 2020 Leading Women’s Society Institute was held from Thursday, October 21 – Sunday, October 24, 2010. Twenty women from across the country gathered at Atlanta’s Palomar Hotel to engage in a weekend of education, skill building, and relaxation in an effort to strengthen the leadership of HIV positive women who are actively working to educate their communities on issues of HIV/AIDS and reproductive justice. The weekend began with a fundraiser held by Maggie’s Giving Group, which helped to raise over $19,000 for SisterLove’s mission, and commenced with an awards ceremony honoring this year’s 2020 Leading Women’s Society inductees.
SisterLove’s 2020 Leading Women’s Society is a ten-year strategic effort to engage the leadership of long-term survivors of HIV/AIDS in creating and implementing an agenda that is based on the hindsight and foresight of at 2,020 HIV positive women in at 20 countries. 2020 leaders are trained, mentored and compensated to address key barriers and stresses that prevent or inhibit women from actively engaging in managing their sexual and reproductive health, advocating for their human rights, and generating income that secures their independence and economic empowerment. In 2009, SisterLove inducted the first 20 women into the 2020 Leading Women’s Society. The 2020 Leading Women’s Society now stands proud with 40 dynamic women actively participating in this leadership program with plans to expand the initiative to increase the number of HIV positive women leaders in North America, Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, and the Caribbean.
