Women Helping Women

24th annual fundraising luncheon featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, Sheryl WuDunn. The event supports programs for women and children in need.

The first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, she has journeyed through several industries, from banking to journalist to book writing, pulling together critical insights to bear upon her work. Selected as one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Shake the World,” she has helped raise awareness about the challenges facing women, such as sex trafficking. In 2012, she was selected as 1 of 60 notable members of the League of Extraordinary Women by Fast Company magazine. In 2013, she was included as one of the “leading women who make America,” in the PBS documentary, The Makers. She was also featured in a 2013 Harvard Business School film about prominent women who graduated from HBS. In 2015, Business Insider named her 1 of the 31 most successful graduates of the Harvard Business School.
