Room To Read

The Empathy, Leadership and Social Change Conference is a FREE event; however, Dr. Anita Nowak, our keynote speaker, is generously donating her honorarium for her participation in today’s conference to
Room to Read.

From the Room to Read website:
We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.

To achieve this goal, we focus on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond.
To show our appreciation for Dr. Nowak’s participation in our event and her donation to this organization, we will be accepting donations to Room to Read on behalf of the Empathy, Leadership and Social Change conference participants.

Drop off your cash or check (payable to: Room to Read) at the Room to Read table in the Ballroom the day of the event.

*Receipts will be available for cash donations.
