Event Details

Named the "woman who redefined mankind" by National Geographic, Dr. Jane Goodall's pioneering study of the lives of chimpanzees in Tanzania nearly 60 years ago has changed the entire world's understanding of our environment. Her tireless efforts to make the world a better place for all living things has lead her on a legendary journey in becoming the foremost expert on chimpanzees, a Dame of the British Empire, and a UN Messenger of Peace.

But in addition to "redefining mankind," it is also important to recognize how Dr. Jane Goodall helped redefined women and the role that women play in the field of conservation and environmental protection.

Join us on Nov. 12 for an inspiring conversation with Dr. Jane Goodall and the Executive Director of Roots & Shoots and JGI as they reexamine the challenges that Dr. Goodall faced in her early career as a pioneering woman in a male-dominated industry nearly 60 years ago. They will also discuss the roles that men can play to better support women and how female empowerment can be the key to healthier communities and a more sustainable environment.
