About

Women In Action Inc. is a woman support group for the everyday woman where we combine the objectives of removing mental health barriers to employment with exercises that promote practical outcomes. Women will learn coping strategies to deal with their emotional concerns, and gain knowledge about the culture of the work environment. Personal strengths will be identified in dealing with stress- related issues. Women can expect to become empowered to pursue educational/employment goals while improving in the area of general life skills. Our work is rooted in a tradition of educating and engaging women of all means about the power of our collective action as philanthropists. We know that we can have a greater impact when we work together, leveraging our financial and intellectual resources for individuals and families to empower themselves to affect long-term systemic change. It is this singular commitment of women helping women that sets Women In Action Inc. apart from more traditional philanthropic organizations locally and nationally. At Women In Action Inc., you will find women from all walks of life. Our board of directors, staff and committed volunteers are a diverse and remarkable team working toward common goals. Our supporters are generous with their time, resources and ideas, actively working to improve the lives of women, girls, their families and communities in Massachusetts.
