At Women’s Funding Alliance, we believe investing in women and girls is the path to a more vibrant future for all of us and for our State. When women and girls are supported and have the tools to succeed, their individual triumphs have ripple effects though out our communities. Join us in December for an engaging conversation with a powerhouse panel of women who are creating pathways to opportunity and equitable workplaces so all Washington women thrive. Hear about Women’s Funding Alliance’s new report, On Her Way, which details what’s needed to break through barriers and how all of us can play a role.

Please join us for a reception with light appetizers and wine to meet our powerhouse panel and mingle with fellow supporters of women and girls.
