Our new website is Phase One of a three-part educational project launch that includes the savviest webinar software and marketing insights available. And that brings us to our new faces…
Our first welcome goes to our new marketing consultant, Evelyn Grewal, who brings 25 years of expertise to serving Kindred’s international readership through a new webinar series launching next month. Evelyn’s marketing plan for Kindred’s future carries a long-range vision of continued and incremental expansion. The number of writers and activists waiting in the wings to connect with you through this program is dynamic and comprehensive. Stay tuned to see what’s sprouting next!
Our next welcome goes out to our newest board of directors member, Teresa Graham Brett, author of Parenting for Social Change: Transform Childhood, Transform the World. Teresa brings a lifetime of professional teaching and activism at the university level to Kindred’s nonprofit mission. She is working with Evelyn to bring to you our webinar series beginning next month. You can listen to my first Fireside Chat podcast with Teresa here. Welcome Teresa! (Read press release.)
Kindred also welcomes Cyrene Schweitzer, a College of William and Mary intern with an international background who will be knocking on your email inboxes and gathering your conscious parenting stories. You will enjoy reading Cyrene’s personal story of coming to American as a ten year-old and her immediate impressions of the differences in connection in families from her native culture in Mexico.
