We host Changemaker Chats every other month in cities across the world. The Chats offer a community of ambitious women an intimate forum for sharing experiences and building relationships, while learning practical tips to advance positive changes at work, at home and in their communities.
Our Chats are designed to help women learn from and connect with one another. We provide a comfy location, light refreshments, and access to inspiring women leaders. There is time to get to know fellow Changemakers before and after the featured speaker gives a short talk, followed by Q/A and discussion with the group.
Due to space limitations, Changemaker Chats is currently an invitation only event. CLICK HERE to request an invite to an upcoming Changemaker Chat in your city.
