Benefitting the Education Fund, the Women’s Forum philanthropic initiative provides unrestricted financial awards of $10,000 to women over the age of 35 pursuing their first college degrees.
Since 2011, our annual fundraising event, named for Forum founder Elinor Guggenheimer, has gathered Forum members and guests to honor both our Education Fund Scholars and trailblazing women leaders from across the city.
This year, we will be honoring three renowned journalists who are leaders in our event theme: Misinformation Warriors.
CNN Anchor and Host, The Assignment with Audie Cornish
Publisher, The Bulwark
Correspondent, 60 MINUTES at CBS News
Accurate information is a bedrock of a strong democracy and free markets. Our honorees are relentlessly working to uphold the values on which our society is based. We know this will be an engaging and dynamic conversation in addition to the inspirational awarding of our Education Fund Award scholars.
