Women Connect Celebration
Featuring Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush
Taking the stage on September 26 for The Chamber's 10th Women Connect Celebration event will be two sisters who impact lives across the nation and globe every day, Jenna and Barbara Bush.
Family relationships play an important role in preserving and protecting a legacy, whether you're establishing a new one or building on an existing one. At this year's Women Connect Celebration, Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush will share with our attendees how they pay tribute to their family name and find meaning in carving their own paths. Finding inspiration from previous generations of their family, including their grandparents and parents, Jenna and Barbara will discuss the powerful legacy of love, patience and commitment.
Jenna and Barbara are daughters to former U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.
