The May issue of The People We Are is online! You will find a colorful package with lots of resources, articles and materials on nutrition, diets and food.

The member feature is on Valerie Baxter, PWA President for the last two years. She is a true caterpillar with a strong will and vision. She was born and raised in London, but has spent all her adult life between Rome and Tuscia – literally! Her professional career in a man’s world led her to PWA 17 years ago, with a vision for change and proper recognition of women’s achievement. PWA is forever thankful for Valerie’s invaluable contribution and we are all counting on her to continue in the backdrop for many more years!

You will find the Woman of the Year candidates on page 13 and all the current candidates for the 2017-18 PWA Board. A mix of Italian-American-Lithuanian-Ukrainian-German professional women are looking forward to creating a great season of events and growth occasions for us all. Our Annual General Meeting starts at 19.00 hrs on Wednesday May 17th and all members have a chance to vote both for the Board and the Woman of the Year. Be active and cast your votes!

You will find fun photos from our April Conference on 20th Century Jewels with Amanda Triossi and the May ConneXion at Le Tartarughe. I put together some physical and online resources on healthy diets and Community Director Cristiana Montani Natalucci writes about the importance of Food in our lives. The series of poems by Elvira la Rocca and paintings by Rossana Chiani is continued with a new theme. So wait no more, start browsing!
