A few words from our President, Betsy Millane
Hello and Happy New Year to all you Wise, Wonderful, Winning Women of WBG!
 
It’s 2020! What are your goals for 2020?
 
One of mine is to continue to build and grow this organization to be the best it can be.
 
I can’t do it alone. Are you reaching out to people, inviting them in? They can only be flattered by an invite, and the guests I have brought in have been so complimentary about our program. Please – think of three people to invite and then do it! You will be glad you did!
 
We have a fabulous speaker up next: Marian Ryan, Middlesex District Attorney.  Marian is an accomplished trial and appellate prosecutor, an acknowledged leader in the battle against the opioid crisis, an outspoken advocate for criminal justice reform, and a creative, collaborative innovator in developing crime prevention programs.
 
She has created within the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office a robust juvenile and young adult diversion program, a drug diversion option and a restorative justice initiative and helped build a Conviction Integrity Unit. Under her leadership, the Office implemented the practice of not requesting cash bail in low-level non-violent offenses to avoid the impact of pretrial detention. Her support of these efforts is important because of its improbability.
 
She has successfully prosecuted many of Middlesex County’s most complex and violent cases and herself been the victim of a brutal attack. Yet, from those experiences, she has developed a deep understanding of how to best protect the public safety and administer justice with compassion and fairness.
 
Won’t you join us?
