EnvisionWell is proud to announce that Founder and CEO, Tammy Williams, has been honored with an invitation to join the VisionForward Strategic Leaders Group. VisionForward (formerly Vision 2020) is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition of organizations and individuals working to advance gender equity through women’s leadership. Tammy Williams has been an advocate/delegate for VisionForward since 2017. EnvisionWell is a Women 100 Proud Partner.
VisionForward invited recognized leaders in various fields and professions locally and nationally to support its mission as volunteer members of the Strategic Leaders group, which is already meeting monthly to help advance gender equity roles. Tammy Williams is one of four members selected among the VisionForward Advocates for demonstrating extraordinary commitment and enthusiasm to the mission and cause of the organization.
“Women’s equality has always been important to me,” says Tammy Williams. “I’ve been a woman in the corporate world and now, a woman entrepreneur. I’ve experienced first-hand what women, and more specifically what Black women have to go through. I believe strongly that women leaders have a responsibility to lift up the women around them and pave the way for the women coming after.”
In 2021, Tammy testified in front of Congress about the decline in female entrepreneurship in a hearing titled, Reversing the Decline in Women Entrepreneurship: Opportunities for Rebuilding the Economy. She focused her testimony on women business owners' lack of access to capital, their lack of access to the key relationships and connections that can propel their business, and the financial struggles resulting from COVID-19.
“I am so honored to have been invited to join this amazing group of individuals who are equally committed to the advancement of women’s equality,” Williams continues. “VisionForward is an amazing organization and I am proud to be a part of it.”
