T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison are the co-founders of GirlTrek – the largest public health nonprofit for African-American women and girls in the United States. Their mission:
“To pioneer a health movement for African American women and girls grounded in civil rights history and principles through walking campaigns, community leadership and health advocacy.”
Last year, they planned a walk retracing Harriet Tubman’s path, hiking the path of the Underground Railroad over a five day period in March, covering around 20 miles on foot each day! In this recent post from ideas.ted.com, they share some of the lessons they learned along the way.
Our favorite on this Women in Business Wednesday:
When women stand together, they can accomplish anything.
