#GirlsToo Teen Talk: United to Prevent Sexual Harassment and Violence:
Sexual harassment and violence is an epidemic that starts at a young age. Hosted by our partner, Girls, Inc., join us for a panel discussion featuring teen perspectives on the problem of sexual harassment and violence facing youth, particularly girls, and what can be done about it. #GirlsToo aims to shift the deeply entrenched norms that lead to sexual harassment and violence and create a culture where all girls and young people can grow up safe, respected, and valued.

Six Degrees Society at Luminary: The Power of Owning Our Own Shadows in Business
Thrive culture starts with knowing ourselves and doing deep work to release and own our unconscious bias. When we are numb, stuck, or undernourished, we can’t see others clearly because we are entrenched in our own stories and labels. This has a tremendous impact on our businesses, teams, and how our work is received in the world.
DATE: Tuesday, May 28, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Book Event: Three Women Speak: Voice, Agency, and Empowerment
How do we find and use our voice in our writing and in our communities? Join Ruthie Ackerman as she moderates a conversation with Sara Lippmann, author of Doll Palace, Sarina Prabasi, author of The Coffeehouse Resistance: Brewing Hope in Desperate Times, and Sarah Ward, YA fiction author of Aesop Lake. They will discuss what literary activism looks like: opportunity, sharing, learning and more. A book signing will follow the event, with books available to purchase.
