Imagine MORE, JDC’s Global Women’s Summit held on Sept. 18, 2019 in New York City, raised awareness for 400 individuals who attended from 25 states and five countries and learned about women’s health, leadership, economic empowerment, resilience and other issues in communities throughout the world, and the need for support and investment in these arenas.
Participant delegations attended from over fifteen communities from across the United States (including significant delegations from Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Jacksonville, Philadelphia, New Haven, MetroWest New Jersey, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Westchester County New York, and West Palm Beach) and a few attendees from international locations like Tel Aviv and Buenos Aires. National Women’s Philanthropy of JFNA also organized a large delegation that included dedicated staff and key national lay leadership.
Ten from the dozen featured speakers promoted an understanding of JDC’s advancement of women’s issues, through their own direct connection with JDC.
Two keynote speakers framed the program and discussed the broader women’s health and rights field: Dr. Paula A. Johnson, President of Wellesley College and Amanda Nguyen, Founder and CEO of RISE, and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.
Additionally, Lisa Eisen, President, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, shared a powerful global message about achieving gender equality and the responsibility of individuals and organizations in this universal cause.

“The speakers, the energy, the audience, the staff. It was simply beyond wildest and best expectations!”
“I left this conference feeling inspired, empowered and hopeful. It made me want to do more personally.”
“The speakers were excellent and inspiring. It was great that the speakers were from different parts of the world with different perspectives. A terrific program. and extremely well-run. Congratulations!”
“It's hard to pick just one highlight. Professor Deborah Lipstadt was excellent, the videos were very moving, as were the personal accounts of the other speakers, such as the director of "Think Pink".”
“It was very effective that the first speaker was older and gave perspective on how things used to be for women, and the last speaker was young, 30, and able to accomplish so much that wouldn't have been possible in an earlier era.”
“Thank you! It was an excellent program.... so well planned and implemented. I enjoyed every minute and each and every speaker. And the food 🙂 And believe me, I’ve been to a lot of conferences and organization luncheons!!!”
“It was INCREDIBLE! A perfect 10”
“What a profound honor it was to join all of you for such an exceptional program. The passion that went into planning, as well as the incredible words of each speaker deeply inspired us to share our voices.”
