Keynote  Speaker: SUSIE ESSMAN


Hear from the actress and comedian who plays Susie Green on the critically acclaimed HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm. Essman is a celebrity – but she’s also an everyday working mother who connects with women on universally shared issues including the trials of parenting teenagers, dealing with elderly parents, and breaking barriers in a male-dominated industry. 

Our Women’s VOICES keynote speaker is made possible through the generosity of the Albert Weissman and Rhoda Yvette Weissman estate.




Woman of the Year: ANN MILLER 


Ann has served as the Jewish Federation & Family Services Campaign Chair, President of Women’s Philanthropy, and Women’s VOICES Chair. Presently, Ann serves as the Family Services liaison to the Women’s Philanthropy Board and sits on the JFFS Substance Abuse Task Force.
