She Says

She Says: Real Women, Real Conversations, a program in partnership with the Bender JCC and Jewish Women International (JWI) is a unique program for women to have honest, authentic conversations about relevant issues of today. We believe that when women come together to listen and to share information and experiences, new opportunities and ideas are born. We believe that a forum for women builds community and empowers and fuels personal growth. We believe that showcasing women as leaders, visionaries and innovators catalyzes change and transforms our future.
