Women’s Philanthropy Wisdom Pairings

December 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

Federation believes in the power of relationships so our Innovation department launched Wisdom Pairings, an intentional community for personal connection and growth. Now we’re pairing Women’s Philanthropy and Federation Innovation for the first Women’s Philanthropy Wisdom Pairings.

Whether you consider yourself to be a mentor, a mentee, or perhaps somewhere in between, you will find a community of women ready to share stories and listen. At Women’s Philanthropy Wisdom Pairings, we are inspired to build stronger relationships and networks, creating a deeper sense of belonging. Pairings are made based on the intersections of shared passions, expertise, life journeys, and interests.

Hear from a panel of four dynamic women in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, moderated by Lisa Galanti Rabinowitz. They will discuss how they’ve achieved success on their own terms. Learn what they would have told their 20-year-old selves, how they got to where they are, and how they adapted as their path changed along the way.
