Leadership from the Sidelines

Posted by Ms. Martha Richards, Oct 19, 2018 0 comments

Twenty-five years ago, I left my job as the Managing Director of a regional theatre and started WomenArts.

I am thrilled that more women are moving into leadership roles in major arts organizations, and I am sure they will have a positive impact.
