Community Shares of Wisconsin marks its fiftieth anniversary in 2021 and is recognizing longtime volunteers and leaders with Anniversary Backyard Heroes Awards.
Wenona Wolf & Emily Dickmann
Wenona Wolf and Emily Dickmann played key leadership roles as board chairs at Community Shares of Wisconsin during a critical time of transition. When our long-term executive director moved on and a new executive director was hired, Emily Dickmann, who had served as a board chair in the past, stepped in to fill in as the board chair to ensure that the hiring process went smoothly and the values of the organization were maintained. Wenona Wolf took over as board chair shortly after and was a pivotal voice for taking the organization to the next level in our work on racial justice. Wenona’s local and national leadership helped to steer us toward transformation. Both of their efforts are greatly appreciated!
