The energy and urgency was palpable as change-makers dedicated to gender equality and to creating a framework where everyone can thrive, came together to look to the future of the movement led by Advancing Women Professionals and the Jewish Community (AWP).

Looking around the room during the daylong conference last week, I was struck by the familiar names and faces (close to twenty current fellows and alumni, plus Cindy Chazan and Marty Linsky!), and felt a renewed pride in being a part of the Wexner community.
