Expanding the wisdom, visibility, and influence of women in business

October Gala & Fundraising Event

Featuring Justice Mary Yu, Washington State Supreme Court Judge
October 12, 2017, 5:30-8:30 pm, Women's University Club

Justice Mary Yu’s story is one of extraordinary accomplishment and determination.  Her lessons in courage started early, learning from her Chinese immigrant father, who refused to let neighborhood boundaries define his life. What followed for her has been a life devoted to service in the interest of creating a more just and empathetic world.  

Please join us for our annual evening celebration and fundraiser where Justice Yu will inspire us to share her commitment to:

  • Empathy and compassion
  • Being a vehicle for change in your environment
  • Staying involved so you can make the system better for others 

"Dare to take risks for the sake of the common good— dare to be free, to be summoned by life without fear."  Justice Mary Yu, Whitman College Commencement Address, 2016
