On the heels of Women’s History Month, the growing Coronavirus pandemic reminds us that as our world faces new challenges and opportunities, women’s courageous and informed leadership is more important today than ever before. Our vision is to see all women embrace their powerful roles as leaders, create opportunity, and generate a ripple effect that inspires, emboldens, and activates women and girls around the world to thrive.

Through our newsletter, the Aspen Forum on Women and Girls will share updates on our programs, Fellows, and partners, as well as ways you can take action to support women and girls in your community. Below is a glimpse of what was included in this edition, click here to read the full letter.

SOAR Leadership Series Launch

Last month, the Forum on Women and Girls celebrated International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month with the launch of SOAR. Our first SOAR Leadership Series conversation featured Gloria Riviera (ABC News), Fatima Goss Graves (National Women’s Law Center), Piper Kerman (author and activist), and Rohini Anand (Sodexo).

We are proud to partner with the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation on this new SOAR initiative, which spotlights and supports inspiring leaders who have broken barriers, pursued bold ideas, and are improving the lives of women and girls around the world. For more information on SOAR and the SOAR Leadership Series, read this announcement from Forum Co-Chairs Anne Mosle and Peggy Clark.
