She Talks!™

SHE Talks!™ is a great way to bring people together in a comfortable environment (at your home or office) to raise funds and awareness for issues affecting the Safety, Health and Economic Empowerment of women in Arizona.  Perhaps your community service club, church, bridge group, book club, business or friends want to be informed of the latest trends in issues affecting women.  The Arizona Foundation for Women will gladly provide a speaker(s) for 45 minutes to share on a topic that you and everyone else in the room pass on to others.

Topics are diverse and broad, such as:

  • Status of Children’s Safety in Arizona

  • Sexual Assault:  From the Examination Room to the Court Room

  • Sexual Assault on College Campuses

  • Women and the Law: The Latest from the United State of Women White House Conference

We’d love to arrange an awareness building speech for your group.  Please contact Ellen Lord at (602) 532-2800 ext. 7 or email
