Leadership Roundtable on Alzheimer’s
Panera Bread, 3416 University Avenue
As a leader in our community, your input is invaluable. We know that Alzheimer’s disproportionately impacts women – both those living with the disease and as caretakers. We cordially invite you to join Alzheimer’s Association staff and other community members for a roundtable discussion about growing the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest fundraiser to fight the disease and build awareness of the needs of those impacted, available support and research surrounding Alzheimer’s. Together, we’ll brainstorm how you and your network can help lead the way to a future without Alzheimer’s.
Please join us. We are not asking you to serve on the Walk Planning Committee – unless, of course, you’d like to. Rather, we would like to take this opportunity to gather your feedback on who you think might be a good leader and partner within our community to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
Free event – Come learn more about the resources the Alzheimer’s Association provides and how to help. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 908.203.8500, ext. 8003 by February 26, 2020
For more information: Martha Sullivan, Partner, Honkamp Krueger & Co.; Executive Committee and Board member – Alzheimer’s Association – Wisconsin

5th Annual International Women’s Day Event
Working theme: Stronger, Smarter, Bolder Together
Monona Terrace and Convention Center, Madison, WI
With all Madison has going for it, it also has some of the most extreme racial disparities in the country. Dane County repeatedly ranks near the bottom in national studies of racial disparities in economic status, health, education, justice and child welfare for African Americans as well as for Hispanics and Asians. That’s simply not right, and until that changes, Madison cannot be counted as a great place to live and work — for everyone.
$100 per person
