For the past 12 years, Notre Dame San Jose has been celebrating the contributions of women in Silicon Valley at our annual Women of Impact event. Honoring women for their vision, commitment and leadership, the event highlights their important role in our community and provides resources to transform the future through education that prepares young women for engagement and leadership in careers and fields where they are underrepresented. 

Notre Dame continues a commitment to celebrating women's leadership. Join us in recognizing our 2021 honorees at the Women of Impact event on October 15, 2021.
