Each spring, YWCA Hartford Region hosts In the Company of Women – the largest networking luncheon in the State. The event brings together a diverse audience of nearly 1,400 successful women from the greater Hartford area to be inspired and to inspire others. The luncheon is YWCA’s most important annual fundraising event, with proceeds helping to fund YWCA’s many programs and services that benefit the lives of women and children in the Hartford region. Attendees meet other women from the community who make a difference in their communities, while gaining insight and inspiration from a keynote speaker who has achieved great success, serves as a role model for women, and – most importantly – is helping to fulfill the association’s mission of empowering women, eliminating racism, and standing up for social justice. We are excited to announce our 2019 keynote speaker is Award Winning Journalist, Documentarian, Entrepreneur & Philanthropist, Soledad O’Brien. Our emcee for the afternoon will be Emmy Award winning, NBC Connecticut anchor, Keisha Grant.
