CWU Assembly to be hosted by LaCrosse Unit October 9 - Save the date!!
The 2021 State Assembly for Church Women United in Wisconsin is scheduled for October 9th. The theme for the assembly, based on Galatians 6:2 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way, you will fulfill the love* of Christ”, focuses on women in our communities that are often overlooked and have little voice; the homeless, the abused, the incarcerated, the exploited. Our hope is, that through awareness, compassion, and community support, these women – all women - will experience the realization that they are “Never Alone”.
Our main speaker, Mao Kong, will give you a compelling and passionate story of hard work, resilience, and faith - from a woman that could easily be one the many voiceless women that struggle socially, economically – and spiritually.
Mao was Kong was born in a Thai refugee camp and immigrated to the United States at nine years of age. Despite many obstacles, Mao was able to earn a degree in nursing, and was soon promoted to be Clinical Manager for Urgent Care at Gundersen Hospital. Her strong managerial and leadership skills enabled her to be invited to help establish and head up the Covid Triage Department for Gundersen.
Though Mao’s personal story is inspiring, she is a compelling and passionate speaker on diversity, equity, and inclusion. In the La Crosse area, Ms. Kong has been an advocate and a fierce defender of domestic violence survivors. She has extensive experience working with people of different cultures and backgrounds. For the past ten years, Kong has partnered with Gundersen Health System, local colleges, the Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council, and other organizations to empower and educate people about diversity, equity, and inclusion. She has been the recipient of several community awards for her work and compassion, including the Rising Stars Award and YWCA’s Outstanding Young Woman Award.
A complete brochure and registration materials will be available later in May
