CINCINNATI (April 27, 2016) —The Women’s Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and 700 of its closest friends had an incredible night on April 5. Political commentator Cokie Roberts was the speaker at the A Conversation With… event at Xavier University’s Cintas Center. 

At the sold-out evening, Roberts addressed subjects such as the history of women in philanthropy, poverty, and the work of The Women’s Fund. 

“The point of a women's fund is women coming together to make their resources much more effective,” said Roberts.

She also praised The Women’s Fund for its commitment to research with the PULSE Studies.

The Women’s Fund Executive Director Meghan Cummings challenged the audience to discuss women’s self-sufficiency in backyards and board rooms. 

“Women’s self-sufficiency isn’t a women’s issue, it’s a community issue,” Cummings said. 

Shakila Ahmad served as the event interviewer. She is president of the board of the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati and an enthusiastic community leader who has dedicated herself to numerous civic and community causes for over 20 years.
