This panel-format, interactive webinar will discuss why it is important to invest in the potential and the rights of girls and women. What is philanthropy, what is social change and how are they connected?

HER Fund invites the corporate sector and foundations to join the discussion and hear from each speaker who will offer valuable insight and actionable learning objectives and takeaways on how the private sector and foundations can better support women and girls. Attendees will have opportunities to participate in live Q & A with each panellist.
