Lecture Series - Join Us-01

Presented by


At Genesis, we know that domestic violence is not a private issue and one in four women will be affected in her lifetime. In Corporate America, over 8 billion dollars are lost each year due to domestic abuse. The Genesis Lecture Series consists of four educational presentations, focused on informing guests on timely topics while arming attendees with the knowledge needed to make a difference within their own companies, families and communities. Please join us for this year’s Lecture Series, A Century in the Making, as we celebrate the 19th Amendment Centennial, recognizing the women who have paved the way for equal rights throughout the last century.


We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are invested in the health of employees, clients, donors and volunteers alike. As a result, Part II, III and IV of the 2020 Lecture Series have been rescheduled and will be virtual events rather than in-person. The updated Lecture Series schedule is posted below. Attendees will receive an email directing them to the virtual meeting closer to the event date.
