The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, by Melinda Gates
The Richardson Chamber Women in Leadership Women4Women peer-mentoring program is designed to provide cross-generational professional support to women at every stage of their career.
Join us for a discussion on Melinda Gates' recent book release, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World. There are electronic versions of the book available at the Richardson Public Library, and it's available on Amazon and other book sellers. If you don't have time to read the book, don't let that stop you from joining us! Whether you've read one chapter, listened to an interview or podcast, or have only seen the book in passing, all are welcome. The conversation is sure to be compelling and enlightening. What better way to spend a summer evening than with thoughtful, professional women who are committed to lifting other women up?
