Women of Impact LogoNotre Dame’s Women of Impact luncheon recognizes and celebrates the role women have played in history, showcasing their contributions and leadership in business and the community. Developed to spotlight women who have made significant contributions to society, the event also generates awareness of the need to provide opportunities for young women outside the scope of traditional education.  The oldest high school for girls in the western United States, Notre Dame began educating the women of the valley in 1851, 165 years ago. We have been preparing women for lives of distinction ever since. 

Funds raised through Women of Impact support leadership programs for young women in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) at Notre Dame High School.


Thank you to our generous 2016 sponsors!
