SMART Gets Radiant

Last night, the New York Women’s Foundation launched Radiance, a photography collection that features female leaders from 46 grantee community organizations. The project includes portraits of our very own Susan, Frances and Tara, and the event included speeches by NYWF Executive Director Ana Oliveira, photographer and TBWA/Chiat/Day COO Emmanuel Andre, and Sandra Killett, Executive Director of the Child Welfare Organizing Project. The book will be made available to grantees in summer 2015.
