A Call to Men

  • I was completely blown away by this conference. It felt like every person I sat next to was a person who had something incredible to offer to my work.

  • I appreciated the breakout sessions that offered concrete solutions and strategies.

    — Jeanne Isler,Vice President, National Committee on Responsive Philanthropy —
  • It is one of the only events I have been to that represented women in the fullest spectrum of our humanity…Women working in the public sector, the private sector and in civil society. Those who fulfil the role of teacher, or student, or healer.  It was truly inspirational.”
