Celebrating Three Decades of Service: WomenVenture Volunteer Director Announces Retirement

Like many women throughout the organization’s history, Ann Mays found herself at WomenVenture at a time when she was experiencing a significant change in her life. It was the early 1980s, and she had recently become a single mother. The former elementary school teacher needed to go back to work, but she couldn’t imagine returning to a classroom full of small children. A friend recommended a local career and employment counseling organization called CHART, which offered a program that could help Ann determine her future career path.
