When we put people together and say, ‘Can you help this woman?’ everyone in our group says ‘Yes, absolutely.’ It’s amazing… By the end of every dinner, we all have something we can do to further somebody else. Times have changed and women are in a position to help each other and make a difference. There’s momentum now, and we’re stitched together tighter.”

Kim Moses, executive producer/director/writer, principal at Sander/Moses Productions and SLAM
