Season two of the Women of Impact Speaker Series will begin in September. Check back in the coming weeks for a full schedule of speakers.  

Thank you for your support. 

 
Building on the annual Women of Impact event that highlights the contributions and achievements of women, Notre Dame’s Women of Impact Speaker Series brings successful women together to share their insight, wisdom, experience and perspective as leaders. Through short, moderated, virtual conversations in a webinar format, men and women of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in these important conversations in support of Notre Dame’s mission to educate young women with the knowledge and skills they “need to know for life.”
