Free Women's Forum 2019 4-16-19WEW photo.jpg

The Phoenix Women's Commission invites you to attend their annual Women Empowering Women Forum 2019 – Equity: Balance for Better.  The event will provide a unique opportunity for women to network, learn and celebrate the success of other women in the community. 

Attendees will learn from nonprofit and business leaders and city of Phoenix representatives about the challenges and opportunities women have in terms of health, safety, employment, economics and civic engagement - including political participation. 

Join local change makers for two revelatory interactive discussions on equity. The conversation will be a space for all to share their questions, concerns and ideas on how to work towards a more equitable community.

​The free event includes conversation circles and lunch!
