The School Sisters of Notre Dame are pleased to offer Women’s Leadership Luncheons, bringing women leaders and colleagues together to reflect on the integration of the spiritual and professional dimensions of life. In 2019, the luncheons will focus on human trafficking: the causes, who is targeted and what is being done to eradicate it. Each location will feature a speaker who is knowledgeable about human trafficking and who works closely with those who have been affected by it. Attendees will gain an understanding of SSND’s stance on human trafficking and what sisters are doing to remedy the problem. The luncheon is free to all guests.
