Virtual Town Halls

Town Halls are an informal way for mother advocates to host talks about topics that are a component of established research, be interviewed regarding their pro-social initiatives, or get feedback on new theories. In some cases, non-members will be permitted to host talks.

Town halls are typically one of two formats:

1.) led by speaker (conference style) or

2.) interview format with a moderator (typically Katie B. Garner but another moderator may be chosen).

The first half of the hour is intended for the speaker to present their ideas and the second half is typically open so other attendees can ask questions, offer feedback, and determine appropriate action steps.

You are welcome to nominate any speaker you think other members would be interested in hearing from — or nominate yourself. We encourage women with diverse backgrounds and experiences to participate. To nominate someone, email

Non-members may participate in town halls for a small fee ($10).
