Morning Opening Session

Lauren Chianese

Renuka Sastri

Lauren Chianese and Renuka Sastri, co-chairs, 100 Women Strong, an initiative at Central Florida Foundation, will present an interactive opening session, engaging attendees in important community conversations.

Having a conversation is such a simple act, yet it has the power to spark great change. We don’t have to share the same ideas and affiliations to have a conversation. And when we talk, and listen, deeply, honestly, and with compassion, new ideas come from new understandings, and great ideas can come to life.

Lauren Chianese has been a lifelong advocate for quality education for all children, focusing on equity for children living in low-income communities. Currently Lauren serves as the co-chair of 100 Women Strong at Central Florida Foundation, a women’s giving circle and is working to launch a communitywide initiative – Becoming a K-Ready Community – an effort to bring leaders together to ensure all children in Central Florida have access to high-quality early childcare.
