Great Dames “Powerful Conversations” Series

Great Dames believe in the power of conversations to create change, because real conversations
foster learning and drive us to action, especially when we are inspired by these Amazing Dames.

The Great Dames Fund donates 100% of proceeds from these events
to causes that empower women and girls, designated by the speakers.

Here are just a few examples…
