Women Helping Women Lineup Announced

Tiffany Johnson, artistic director and founding member of Pyramid Theatre, is the featured speaker at the 2021 Women Helping Women event.

Angela Connolly, Polk County supervisor, and Tiffany Johnson, artistic director and founding member of Pyramid Theatre, will be the featured guests at Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center’s 2021 Women Helping Women. Scheduled for May 21, the event will be hybrid—both in-person, at the Embassy Suites downtown, and virtual.

The organization hopes to raise $210,000. Funds will support mental health counseling, education, training and other services for women, children and families who are uninsured or underinsured. Connolly will be honored for her longtime support of mental health access. Johnson will give the keynote speech, focusing on how storytelling can shine a light on mental health.

The event is organized by a group of 30 volunteers, headed by three co-chairs: Carol Bodensteiner, public relations professional and author; Renee Hardman, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa; and Emily Kessinger, director of Capital Crossroads. To reserve your spot or contribute, click here.
