Quarantine, lockdowns, confinement, social distancing. These words take on new meaning today. Given this new reality, it is more important than ever to stay connected and offer one another support. It is more important than ever to move ahead with positivity and humor. We are each finding our own ways around this, and IWF is here to lend a hand.

I am happy to welcome you to IWF’s “COVID Community Corner.” This special webpage is a virtual hub of resources, articles and programming that will help the IWF community lead through this tumultuous time. From uplifting member stories to informative conference sessions, there is something useful for anyone. We will continue to update this page as we create more unique content.

As global leaders, we typically come face to face with seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet we find a way to overcome. There is always a silver lining. Humanity and kindness will prevail. Keep one another close, and remember you can lean on this community whenever you need it.

Stay well, 

Deborah Shannon Trudeau

Peggy Goldwyn


Tina Moen


Nobel Laureates Drs. Frances Arnold & Donna Strickland

 IWF Idaho member Peggy Elliott Goldwyn began her career writing, directing and producing documentaries for syndicated television. She wrote television comedies for many years, including "That Girl," "The Odd Couple" and "Happy Days," as well as television movies and motion pictures. Today, she’s a novelist, activist and fierce woman’s advocate.


Dr. Moen joined us at the 2019 World Leadership Conference in Toronto to discuss the artificial intelligence revolution. As a panelist, she spoke about the latest frontiers of this exciting new technology, including the specific intersection of AI and healthcare.



While in Toronto for the 2019 IWF World Leadership Conference, we inducted two outstanding women into our Hall of Fame: Drs. Frances Arnold and Donna Strickland. We wanted to hear more from these accomplished experts. We asked each woman about life after winning the Nobel, new thoughts on their respective innovations, and how we can encourage more young people to take up science.

This edition features a conversation with one of sports’ most powerful people: FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura. While in Barcelona to speak at our 2019 Cornerstone Conference, Samoura talked to us about why she decided to take the role at FIFA, what she's changing to make football a powerful force for good, and how a new slogan – #DareToShine – will help take the women’s game to a new level.
