Ten years ago, the Haverford Speaker Series for Women® began as an idea. More than thirty events and over 3,500 participants later, this idea has evolved into a movement and a mission, illustrating how a small action can have a big impact. As we reflect on the past decade and look towards the next ten years, we are focusing this year’s programming on the Quality connections at the heart of this thriving mission. We’ve invited some of our favorite friends back to speak this year and asked them to bring along a friend of their own. We hope you, too, will introduce a friend to the Series this year. Join us in celebrating and expanding the Quality connections in your network as we learn about small changes we can make in our own lives that can have a lasting impact.
