Nov 18 @ 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Event proceeds work to advance equity for women…by providing HER Scholarships, supporting Grants to area NFP organizations addressing systemic issues, and convening the community to change attitudes, behavior, and culture. Thank you for your investment

This year the Women’s Fund Presents…Disruptors, Changing the Power Dynamics. During this annual event which also includes a virtual option, the Women’s Fund deepens the community conversation about gender and race and the impact of intersectionality for women in Milwaukee.

At this dynamic luncheon, which also includes a virtual option, Johnson Controls as Speaker Sponsor, brings Abby Phillip, senior political correspondent and anchor of Inside Politics Sunday on CNN, to talk about her journey, share stories from the road traveling with politicians, and relate her personal insights about how gender and race impact women.

 

 In conversation with Phillip, is, recently retired Dr. Joan M. Prince, Vice Chancellor of Global Inclusion and Engagement at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a nationally renowned advocate for equity.

 Additionally, the Women’s Fund celebrates “Disruptors” named by Johnson Controls, Associated Bank, the Signature Sponsor, along with other Event Sponsors too.  These “Disruptors” are people who are changing the status quo and creating social change. They are innovative and breaking new ground. They are bold thinkers, leading by example, inspiring others, and shifting attitudes, behaviors, and culture. 

Join the community effort to advance equity of all women.
