Abzug; Sharna Goldseker, 21/64: Strategic Philanthropy Through the Generations; Sara Gould, Ms. Foundation for Women; Mia Herndon, Third Wave Foundation; Carol Jenkins, The Women's Media Center; C. Nicole Mason; Monique Mehta, Independent Consultant; Benita R. Miller, The Brooklyn Young Mother's Collective; Elizabeth A. Sackler, Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation; and Amy Sananman, Groundswell Community Mural Project.
