We are creating events for intergenerational and intersectional discussions, ranging from large-scale conversations below to roundtable chats and screenings designed to help us capture in digital form the power of women to shift narratives and effect change.
You can help us build these events by participating as a Supporter, Philanthropist, or Donor. We also are choosing Sponsors to align with our MWP community at these events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
