As we witness a groundswell of women seeking ways to activate, get involved and make change, how can we direct our efforts toward the issues that matter most? What actions can we take to improve our communities, workplaces and governments?
Join us for a conversation with a diverse group of activists and leaders dedicated to building the power of a wide spectrum of women and girls throughout our region. Through small discussion groups, you’ll connect with others committed to ending gender bias, so that you leave informed, inspired and energized.
