In the Company of Women Luncheon

In the Company of Women is YWCA Hartford Region’s signature fundraising event. Since 1996, we’ve invited inspirational speakers to share their inspirational stories and lift women, girls and families. The event has grown to become the state’s largest networking event, bringing together business and community leaders, public officials and our program participants to celebrate and advance our work supporting women, girls and families in the Hartford Region.

This year we’re excited to welcome Jackie Joyner-Kersee, as our keynote speaker. Her accomplishments as one of the greatest track and field athletes in American history will be honored! Ms. Joyner-Kersee’s accomplishments both on and off the field serve as an inspiration for all.

Throughout the years, our speakers and guests have built the foundation to advance our vision. A vision to become a community with unlimited opportunities to un-limit opportunity for all. Ms. Joyner-Kersee joins a long list of distinguished and inspirational leaders who have joined us each year. View our past speakers here.

We can’t wait to see you on April 20, 2023 and celebrate our work together. Work that impacts women, girls, and families every day.
