Our Vision & Mission: Women of Vision Alliance (WOVA) is a non-profit organization which provides a forum for women to come together. In essence, our vision is to allow the diversity and creativity of each individual to help build a stronger sisterhood. WOVA seeks to nourish the spiritual and physical being. Our focus is to cultivate positive and motivational activities, events , networking opportunities and many other key initiatives . We aim to get women involved and encourage one another to share gifts and talents within the network and our community at large. WOVA strives for empowerment, self-confidence, self-assurance, peace and wellness of all women.
WOVA Radio is an extension of the same vision. WOVA 24/7 Talk Radio for women is programming arranged in a 24-hour network format serving women. An array of staple shows will air live, along with weekly updated shows in short form (:07, :15 and :30 minute increments). WOVA will host encores of the staple shows; there will be a current rotation of daily commentary, entertainment segments, announcements of events from sororities and more. The WOVA network will debut with its first short form program, a daily commentary segment and a weekly entertainment show with one on one interviews and a featured segment highlighting Phenomenal Women working in their community.
Women of Vision Alliance (WOVA) is the dream-child of President/Founder Bernadette Holder, of Boston, MA. She believes there needs to be a platform where women can voice their concerns, share their thoughts and help one another through common knowledge of their experiences collectively. Her vision unfolded when a group of like-minded women came together for its first Informational Kick-Off Brunch on Saturday, May 5, 2001 in Boston, MA at the Copley Marriott. The meeting was very successful and WOVA was established. Women of Vision Alliance hosted their 1st Fund-Raising effort in 2003. It was a symposium with a panel of five women focused on “The Overall Woman: The Essence of Women, Balancing Family, Work & Wellness.
The event also featured Keynote speaker Judy Garber, Director of the Cancer Risk &Prevention Program at the Gillette Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. She spoke on the awareness of Breast Cancer and the importance of annual examinations. The event was sponsored by Hay House. Warm Spirit Founder, Nadine Thompson was one the guest panelist, and Warm Spirit also sponsored the tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
WOVA later launched its first Virtual Book Tour. The book was “A New Normal” by Author K. Lee. There was an on-line dialogue that included not only women, but welcomed men to participate. It was later podcast to WOVA subscribers on iTunes.
WOVA has since extended an LA Chapter and is very excited about its growth. WOVA is working on a couple of key events this coming year. Original and inspired programming will continually be added to WOVA Radio.
