Storytellers Contest: Celebrating Women Who Uplift and Inspire

Presented by Target and the Pennsylvania Conference for Women

Target and the Pennsylvania Conference for Women present storytellers contest to celebrate women sharing joy

Target and the Pennsylvania Conference for Women are coming together to celebrate women who are discovering new ways to infuse joy into their communities, their workplaces, and their families.

Whether small or grand, lighthearted or poignant, spur-of-the-moment or carefully planned, the acts of these women lift others up by creating opportunities for joy, and this is our chance to thank them.

Examples include:

  • Creating a book club or a recipe train to keep her community connected while isolated
  • Building a virtual kudos jar to recognize the contributions of colleagues while working from home
  • Starting a help line for neighbors needing support during COVID or winter’s mass power outages
  • Pivoting the entire organization to virtual in mere days with grace, and now leading the transition into the hybrid workplace
  • Providing care for others with a smile (teachers, medical or service industry workers).
