AskHer Series: Sisters in Solidarity | Amplifying Change through Women’s Foundations

This informative discussion highlighted the vital role of women’s foundations in our communities.

During the conversation, we heard from dynamic women leaders at the helm of women’s foundations who stand alongside their organizations as champions of positive change and catalysts for transformations in the lives of women and girls in our communities. We also discussed the unique challenges women and girls, especially those of color, face and learned more about how these foundations are strategically addressing their evolving needs, leaving no one behind.

Panelists included:

  • Ana L. Oliveira, President and CEO of The New York Women’s Foundation
  • Bia Vieira, CEO of Women’s Foundation of California

The webinar was moderated by Dr. Tamara Wilds Lawson, President and CEO of Washington Area Women’s Foundation.
