ABOUT THE NATIONAL WOMEN'S HISTORY MUSEUM
Founded in 1996, the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is an innovative museum dedicated to uncovering, interpreting, and celebrating women’s diverse contributions to society. A renowned leader in women’s history education, the Museum brings to life the countless untold stories of women throughout history, and serves as a space for all to inspire, experience, collaborate, and amplify women’s impact—past, present, and future. We strive to fundamentally change the way women and girls see their potential and power. NWHM fills in major omissions of women in history books and K-12 education, providing scholarly content and educational programming for teachers, students, and parents.

ABOUT WOMEN CONNECT4GOOD
Women Connect4Good, Inc., is a 501(c)3 with a single mission: women (and men) supporting women, without exclusion. That means working to ensure that all women have access to education, healthcare, housing, and employment opportunities, and putting an end to violence against women and girls and discrimination in all forms. It means connecting with other organizations working for the advancement of women and girls and increasing our reach, so no woman’s voice goes unheard. We are committed to increasing women’s empowerment and achieving gender equality. We know that true gender equity does not currently exist, and as we work toward it, we must advocate for each other. We must support and encourage each other in our homes and offices, acting as advisors, mentors and friends. We envision a world where women are able to realize their fullest potential, finding strength and support in each other. Women helping women is our greatest self-help tool, and that mission that drives everything we do. www.drnancyoreilly.com/
