The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls, in partnership with Downingtown Mayor Josh Maxwell, invites men to join local leaders and members of the community for a conversation about the important role that men play in creating a culture of respect and equality for all.
The event will feature light fare and refreshments, great conversation, and networking opportunities.
Maxwell will be the main speaker, talking about how we all have opportunities to be ambassadors for women’s safety in our family, community, and professional lives.
Ken Knickerbocker, publisher of VISTA Today, will facilitate an open conversation after Maxwell’s remarks.
According to CCFWG’s 2016 Blueprint Report, a gender-focused research study, “increasing women’s safety is integral to elevating their overall status.
Violence and abuse have devastating consequences that go beyond physical injury to undermine women’s autonomy, liberty, and dignity, preventing them from fully participating in the economy and in civic and political life.”
The Blueprint Report provides critical data about how women and girls are faring in Chester County and in the nation.
