On March 11, 2021, the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes (CSA) will host the 17th annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast, celebrating and honoring women leaders who embody the “courageous initiative” of Mother Agnes. The event will be held virtually from 8-9:30 a.m. using Zoom.
Because of the virtual nature of our event, there is no cost to attend this year. We hope to welcome new attendees who many have been unable to physically join us in the past. Donations will be accepted, and we hope you will consider supporting our beneficiary as a business sponsor.
All proceeds from the Women’s Leadership Breakfast go to support Marian University’s Working Families Grant, a collaborative effort to empower economically disadvantaged families through education. This proactive program, co-sponsored by CSA and an anonymous donor, provides families with tuition assistance and stipends for food, rent, and childcare.
As a sponsor, your business name and logo will be featured on our website and social media pages as we lead up to the event and also showcased in the pre-event slideshow.
This year, CSA welcomes six panelists, representing local health care, education, and community services, who will share how they have responded to the needs of local women during the pandemic.
Healthcare panelists will be Katherine Vergos, President, St. Agnes Hospital and Dawn Vandenberg, Regional Director – Mission Integration, SSM Health. The education panel will showcase Christina Witthun, a December 2020 graduate who utilized Marian University’s Working Families Grant Program and the program’s director, Kerry Strupp. Community Services will feature Amy Bayer, Prevention Educator, Domestic Violence Services and Theresa Menting, Executive Director; Goebel Family Foundation - Women’s Empowerment Series.
Each pair of women identified different opportunities to meet the needs of those they serve and respond to those needs with “courageous initiative.” Attendees will be invited to ask questions and learn more about how they too can have an individual impact on a global problem.
