Join Us May 19-20, 2023

Then. NOW. Always.

We hope you were able to join us on May 19-20, 2023 at the Women Who Amaze Summit.

We connected with other committed JMU women, learned valuable lessons from the wisdom of experienced leaders, and witnessed the transformative power of scholarships when we heard from our Amethyst Circle scholarship recipients.

The next Women Who Amaze Summit will take place in May 2025. Until then, join us in us celebrating a century of women’s philanthropy at JMU, 10 years of growth for Women for Madison and the next biennium of the Amethyst Circle initiative.
