Notre Dame’s Women of Impact luncheon spotlights the role women have played in history, recognizes and celebrates those making significant contributions to society today and showcases the regional and global impact of developing meaningful and integrated learning programs for young women.

The oldest high school for girls in the western United States, Notre Dame has been educating the women of Santa Clara Valley since 1851. Supporting the discovery of each young woman’s voice and leadership capabilities, we have been preparing women for lives of distinction ever since.
 
Funds raised through Women of Impact directly impacts opportunities for young women to benefit from leadership programs in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) at Notre Dame High School.
