WOMEN'S SUMMIT 2005

The hosts of the summit, the Louisville Metro Office for Women and Women 4 Women, are committed to stepping up their efforts to turn these statistics around. They believe the best way to begin is by tapping into the vibrant network of organizations and individuals in our community who support and empower girls, women and their families on a daily basis.

The aim of the summit was to open an ongoing channel of communication so that organizations and agencies serving womenand girls can learn more about what others are doing in their areas of interest (girls, aging, health, etc.) learn about issues outside of their areas of interest.
