The Junior League of Boston (JL Boston) Training Council is proud to present “Women Moving Our Community Forward – a Discussion on Public Advocacy.” Join JL Boston at the NonProfit Center on Saturday, April 29, 2017, for a unique training and dialogue experience with Junior League members, advocates and women from our neighborhoods to discuss how we can move our community forward with public advocacy.
During a three-panel discussion, participants will learn about ways to take action in the community, how local and state politics work and will also hear the personal stories of women who have affected change in our neighborhoods and beyond.
Featured speakers include Victoria Budson, Executive Director of the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School; Beth Chandler, Chief Operating Officer, YW Boston; Megan Costello, Executive Director, Mayor’s Office of Women’s Advancement, City of Boston; Eva Millona, Executive Director, Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition; and many more.
