As women, we use our voices to elevate and transform our communities, our state, and our nation.  One hundred years after women first won the right to vote, and in celebration of International Women’s Day 2020, we will come together as a Gathering of Givers once more to hear women’s powerful voices as they shape all aspects of our collective lives:  through awe-inspiring artistic expression, increasing political representation and power, transformative social service to others, through education opportunities and economic empowerment, and as crafters of the written and spoken word.

You’re invited for a morning with a diverse array of women who will share their voices with us, and inspire us to reach higher in making our communities, our state and our world a better place today and for the next generation.

Come for the inspiration! Discover new connections!
