Affinity Group Virtual Event: All Women Forward

In 2021, Women in Healthcare, Finance, Law and S.T.E.A.M. will come together for one amazing virtual event!

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Keynote:  4:00-4:45 pm

Optional Virtual Networking by Industry:  4:45-5:15 pm

Funds raised through the All Women Forward event will benefit the 2021 Rebuilding Women Initiative. The initiative will continue to address the intersecting barriers women and girls face in the wake of COVID-19. More women and girls will have access to mental and physical healthcare, as well as vaccine education. More women will receive shelter, childcare, and financial assistance.


If you work in an industry outside of healthcare, finance & investment, law or S.T.E.A.M., we want to know you too!  Email Shandy Arwood at sarwood@atlantawomen.org to discuss starting another affinity group.
