After three years of growing success, Leading Women for Shared Parenting (LW4SP) aims to accelerate future growth and influence to educate policy makers about the need for shared parenting. To achieve these goals LW4SP is pleased to announce the following management transitions, which are effective immediately.
After serving her full three-year term, Molly K. Olson, Co-Founder and founding President, is transitioning to take on the new role of Chairperson of the Board of Directors of LW4SP. In addressing this transition, Molly said:
“It has been a privilege to serve as President of LW4SP and I’m very grateful for all we’ve accomplished since our inception. It’s imperative women use their voice to rally and collaborate together to create positive change for children, and no organization is better suited to fill that role than Leading Women for Shared Parenting and the highly credible women who share our vision. I’m genuinely excited about the opportunities we’ve created and am eager to lead the Board in pursuing new public policies, nationally and internally, that we know are best for children, families and society.”
Beginning her term as the newly elected President of LW4SP is attorney and writer, Leslie Loftis. Having been a member of LW4SP for three years, Leslie has written extensively about the research on shared parenting and has experience with prior political campaigns, including the shared parenting ballot initiative in North Dakota and the legislative push in Florida. Reflecting on her election, Leslie said:
“It’s an honor and privilege to have been elected the President of such an exemplary organization and I can think of no more worthy cause than advocating for children. Fatherlessness is the number one social problem in our society and family courts play far too large a role in contributing to the dilemmas faced by these children. As we continue to expose the establishment politics controlling Family Law, we will create additional opportunities for policies that child psychologists say are best for children, namely shared parenting. I look forward to working with the outstanding team at LW4SP to make this a reality.”
