Women's History Month
We are halfway through March, one of my favorite months, Women’s History Month. Three years ago, this time, Bien Abyé celebrated our women artisans at a wine tasting we hosted while NYC was shutting down because of a global pandemic. I didn’t know what the future would hold for us. As I take a moment to reflect, the two things I keep close to my heart are the goals the Bien Abyé team have achieved since then and the goals we have yet to embark on.more
