Southeast Speaker Series
About the Speaker Series Program
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF Speaker Series program is designed to engage the Atlanta philanthropic and civic community in UNICEF’s work through important discussions about issues affecting children globally and locally. It consists of two to four events per year, each focusing on one of UNICEF’s core priorities areas (child survival, child development, child protection, or emergencies) and featuring a conversation among international and local leaders on the issue at hand. Whenever possible, we partner with local organizations to co-host and/or co-sponsor the event. The venue and timing of the events rotates based on speakers and topics.
About the Speaker Series Committee
The Speaker Series committee was established in July 2011 in order to serve as thought leaders for the events, to help increase attendance, and to serve as Chairs of specific events that are of interest. Members are active supporters of UNICEF’s work who are interested in helping to increase awareness about UNICEF and the issues facing children around the world.
Committee Members: Enid Draluck, Committee Chair, Bridget Doerr, Wendy Gutierrez, Denise Poole, Committee Vice-Chair, Liz Price, Sherry White and Joyce Yamaato
