    There are numerous measures of what makes a community vital, including having the ability to realize positive social, economic and environmental outcomes. At our Fall Kickoff, we’ll explore just one aspect of this multifaceted concept – community support for children’s needs in the St. Louis region. Join us as we gain the perspectives of the leaders of three of our 2023 grantee organizations through a panel discussion on their missions and how each contributes individually and collaboratively to creating positive childhood outcomes from birth through adolescence. Our 2023 grantee panel members are:

    Patrice Shumate, board member, Books for Newborns
    Katie Houck, executive director, Urban Harvest STL
    LaKrecia Cox, executive director, Girls in the Know

    We’re fortunate to host this event once again at the wonderful Delmar DivINe. The event begins with light refreshments and an opportunity for you to connect with fellow members and guests followed by the discussion and a question-and-answer session.

    This will be an inspirational evening! All are welcome to attend.

    Dolly Chugh is a Harvard-educated, award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, where she is an expert researcher in the psychology of good people. Her book, The Person You Mean to Be, is an inspiring guide on confronting difficult issues such as sexism, racism and inequality. Through personal stories and the science that supports her findings, Dolly guides us closer to becoming the person we mean to be in the hopes that her findings will help us make the world a better place.

    This video interview, recorded in February 2021 and sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Center for Positive Organizations, touches on the main findings from the book, punctuated with personal stories and practical tips. It is engaging and offers the chance to dip your toes into some very challenging subject matter. Members and guests have the option of viewing just the video for the discussion or reading the book.

    Join us for this special 4-hour visit to the St Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum, which is planned for Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund members only. This insightful opportunity begins with a 90-minute museum tour followed by the Impact Lab experience and group discussion. This experience seeks to empower visitors to explore the complexities of genocide, hate crimes, and prejudice from perspectives of both historical and contemporary moments. By learning from past and contemporary moments, we can become better equipped to be “Active Allies” who work together to create a more tolerant, compassionate world.

    The St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust, educating about its causes and illustrating how what happened during this tragic period relates to our lives today, and uses the history and lessons of the Holocaust to reject hatred, promote understanding, and inspire change.

    This event is limited to 50 SOS member participants and includes light refreshments during the group discussion. Advance registration with pre-payment is required. Walk-in registrations at the museum at the time of the event cannot be accommodated. Not a member? Join SOS today!
