women of matic

In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we asked The Womxn of Matic to share their favorite organizations that celebrate and advocate for women. The Womxn of Matic is Matic’s employee group that offers a space for women to connect with, support, and empower each other. We come together regularly to discuss challenges and share ideas on topics like career progression, stress management, and more.

If you’re looking for an organization to support this month, here are a few of their recommendations — ranging from those local to our offices in Columbus and Phoenix to nationwide and international groups. 

Our top five picks

1. Arizona Women’s Recovery Center

Website: https://azwomensrecoverycenter.org/

Why is this organization important to you?  

“We found this organization when we were looking to donate some gently-used furniture. They provide women and their children with a safe place to live while on the road to recovery. Each family has their own apartment, with a shared community courtyard, offering a support system for each of the families. While in this housing environment, women learn essential life skills necessary to become independent.” -Shari, Vice President of Insurance


2. METAvivor

Website: https://www.metavivor.org/

Why is this organization important to you?

“My friend is currently going through treatment for Stage IV metastatic breast cancer, and this organization does such great work with focused effort and funding on research for this specific subset of cancer patients.” -Corey, Carrier Relations Manager


3. Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO)

Website: https://www.ohiohealth.com/community-health/sarnco

Why is this organization important to you?

“I am a volunteer advocate for SARNCO — meaning I respond to sexual assault cases in the emergency rooms, answer the helpline, and do community outreach. The organization really helps to provide emotional support and community resources for survivors.” -Becky, Senior Partner Development Manager


4. Dress For Success Columbus

Website: https://dfscmh.org/

Why is the organization important to you?

“I’ve seen how much the support of others can make or break a woman’s confidence in her own ability to succeed. Empowered women will empower other women — and DFS helps pave the way.” -Katherine, Senior Director of Product Marketing


5. Sylni (Strong)

Website: https://www.sylni.org/en

Why is this organization important to you?

“Sexual assault is a hard topic to talk about – especially during the war in Ukraine, when there are so many issues to tackle. Sylni helps give back strength to those who survived sexual violence through coverage of medical expenses, psychological support, and legal assistance.” -Marchika, Senior Recruiter
