Chrysalis continues to lead the conversation about education, empowerment, social and economic equality — to ensure that girls and women have the opportunity to contribute to our community in meaningful and lasting ways. 

Our events lend a voice to those who otherwise don’t have one, address problems and offer solutions, and celebrate the women and girls making an impact within our communities.
