WisdomWomen is a community that supports women in birthing their sacred visions for the world. We are women who believe it is time to look in a revolutionary new direction and build our world from a different paradigm. We are not asking whether or not this can be done. We are claiming that it is ours to do. We believe that when we are held in a container of connection, support and wisdom, new possibilities will emerge beyond our wildest dreams.
WisdomWomen’s Founder, Michelle Stransky, originally formed Wisdom 2.0 Women under the umbrella of Wisdom 2.0, where she was the Conference Director. After two years of hosting events as Wisdom 2.0 Women, Michelle left Wisdom 2.0 to create WisdomWomen as an independent organization. WisdomWomen hosts Visionary Gatherings around the world and provides a year-round platform of engagement to catalyze connection and co-creation amongst its international community of members.
WisdomWomen operates as a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization under the auspices of it’s umbrella organization, Inquiring Systems, Inc.
Michelle Stransky: Founder
Michelle believes that it is time for women to bring their deep wisdom forward into co-creating the life-affirming world we know is possible. As a Producer, she brings her gifts and experience of producing events around the world for organizations like Wisdom 2.0, into creating WisdomWomen gatherings. As a Collaborator, she brings her leadership skills in tandem with her experience participating in and leading women’s circles. One of Michelle’s greatest joys is in being a connector and so it is a great honor for her to be a weaver of the WisdomWomen web.
Leslie Frame-Crowley: Community Director
Leslie has volunteered and worked in the social change/nonprofit industry for most of her professional life, with a focus on women’s advocacy and services. She is a WisdomWomen Founding Member who believes in the power and necessity of sacred storytelling. This calling has led her to the stage as an actor and to develop a love of writing. Leslie manages content for WisdomWomen’s blog, general communications and is co-creator of our “Step into the Circle” podcast series (coming soon). She believes that as we share our stories, our dreams, and our work, connections are made, resources are shared, and creative hearts are nourished. She is also co-steward of WisdomWomen’s ‘Intergenerational Wisdom’ Visionary Council.
