About this Event

YWCA Greater Memphis is proud to welcome Dr. Shirley Raines back to Memphis, as its 2020 Annual Benefit Luncheon Speaker. Dr. Raines will share insights gained from her rise from a sharecropper’s daughter to become the first woman to lead the University of Memphis as President and the first female President of the Memphis Chamber. She has been a lecturer at the White House, at Harvard and numerous conferences around the world. She has written twelve books, has been inducted into the Tennessee Women's Hall of Fame and is a sought after speaker and leadership consultant. Not only did she accomplish many “firsts” but she paved the way to make it easier for those following her. In this year commemorating the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote, Dr. Raines is women’s empowerment in action.

YWCA Greater Memphis has served the Memphis area since 1919. They operate the only 24 hour emergency domestic violence shelter in Shelby County. They provided over 10,000 nights of safety last year and received thousands of calls on their emergency hotline. Luncheon proceeds will support domestic violence programs and prevention.
