Join Digital Sisterhood Network in honoring the 2011 Digital Sisters of the Year Stacey Milbern and Mia Mingus! Stacey and Mia are digital sister warrior women who willingly practice the art of surrender and truth telling as they:
- embrace their fears and live conscious lives with shared values,
- fully express their authenticity and creativity,
- give voice to their thoughts,
- document their community building efforts, and
- engage in social justice advocacy online and offline.
Their beautiful spirits, stories, and life work touch the core of humanity’s heart. They remind us how powerful women are when they connect and cultivate friendships, engage in conversations, build community, establish collaborative partnerships, and support social justice causes based on shared interests.
