Changemakers: Daring Women Leaders

September 7 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$10

Wednesday September 7th from 4PM to 7PM. Includes time to enjoy a glass of wine from the cash bar and explore Alnoba’s ground and art.

They’re the doers and dreamers—three women leaders who transformed their worlds for the better. The poet, activist and expeditionary learning guru who founded a brilliantly successful charter school serving kids in the most challenging neighborhood in Boston. The urban artist-entrepreneur who taught kids to turn their passion into a career. The management, entrepreneurial and organizational whiz who championed to keep Big Sister of Greater Boston as the only Big Brothers Big Sisters of America affiliate that only serves girls and receive their national Agency of the Year Award.

Join us for this intimate and conversational event and rare opportunity to meet these three nationally recognized and soon to be retired wisdom-keepers as they share their stories of pioneering for change against the odds.
