Celebrating Resilience Luncheon

06/07/2022 -11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The Celebrating Resilience Luncheon is one of Resilience’s premier annual events: every year, supporters, corporate and community partners, friends, and allies gather to celebrate an exemplary business leader who has demonstrated resilience throughout their career and is committed to supporting Resilience’s mission and vision.

Past Resilience speakers include Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods and co-founder of Test400k, an organization dedicated to advocating ending the backlog of 400,000 untested rape kits in the United States, Susan Packard, Co-Founder of HGTV, and Tarana Burke, Me Too founder.

This year, we are thrilled to announce that Melissa Widen, Founder, Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel of First Women’s Bank, will be our keynote speaker. First Women’s Bank is the only commercial bank in the country founded, owned, and led by women with a strategic focus on the women’s economy.

We hope you will join us in person for this special and exclusive event.
