Friends of ICSW Linda Bisgaard

In 2014, the Iowa Women's Foundation marked its 20th anniversary with the inaugural issue of Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls. To be published annually, Ovation introduces remarkable women and girls from all walks of life with Iowa connections. Through tributes to them, written by those who know them well, Ovation provides a glimpse of the deeply important and enormously varied ways they affect their families, friends, communities and professions.

The Friends of ICSW is proud to honor Linda Bisgaard, President of the Friends of ICSW, in the 2015l issue of Ovation with this tribute:

Linda is a focused advocate and relentless promoter of opportunities for women and girls. As president of Friends of the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women, Linda works tirelessly to help ensure Iowa women and girls have opportunities to reach their full potential. In her role with Girl Scouts, Linda builds partnerships among organizations that benefit girls’ efforts to become women of courage, confidence, and character.  Linda contributes to the Governor’s STEM initiative, and nationally, she has been involved in policy, advocacy, STEM, anti-bullying and healthy living through Girl Scouts of the USA and the National Alliance for Partnerships in Education. Linda is passionate about making a difference in the lives of those around her, and especially in the lives of women and girls.

The Martin Luther King, Jr.
Lifetime Achievement  Drum Major for Service

Each year, President Obama recognizes unsung heroes around the country who have answered the call to service.  Inspired by Dr. King’s historic speech on the Drum Major Instinct, the MLK Drum Majors for Service program—facilitated by the White House and the Corporation for National and Community Service—honors people in organizations and businesses who are serving their communities, often without recognition.

In 2014, the Iowa Women's Foundation marked its 20th anniversary with the inaugural issue of Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls. To be published annually, Ovation introduces remarkable women and girls from all walks of life with Iowa connections. Through tributes to them, written by those who know them well, Ovation provides a glimpse of the deeply important and enormously varied ways they affect their families, friends, communities and professions. 

The Friends of ICSW is proud to honor Michelle Durand-Adams, Treasurer and Past President of the Friends of ICSW, in the inaugural issue of Ovation with this tribute: 

"Michelle Durand-Adams is a source of energy and inspiration. Her leadership and service have been felt by countless Iowa students as they financed higher education; by children who benefited from her work as a trustee for Children & Families of Iowa; and by youth encouraged to develop a passion for volunteerism.  Michelle blazed a trail in the male-dominated banking profession, then made an innovative turn to develop her own successful Internet marking business. For nearly twenty-five years, Michelle has been the unsung hero and constant champion for the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women and its Friends board. With vision, leadership, and advocacy, Michelle has demonstrated unwavering support for initiatives that seek to expand opportunities and equality for Iowa women and girls." 

With admiration and gratitude from Friends of the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women
