Women of Influence Award Nominations

Nominations are now open for the Dottie Berger MacKinnon Woman of Influence Award.

Featured Speaker Anne Geddes

Anne Geddes’ first coffee table book Down in The Garden, released in 1992, became a runaway New York Times Best Seller; there are over one and a half million copies in print today. This same year along with her husband she created The Geddes Philanthropic Trust, which so far has raised more than $5.7 million to help prevent and raise awareness for child abuse and neglect.

As a global ambassador for children, Geddes also shares the March of Dimes honor with her partnership with the United Nation’s Every Woman Every Child initiative, to help make the health and welfare of pregnant women, and newborn children, a global priority. She is the Global Advocate for the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, which aims to provide access to basic life-saving immunizations to children in the developing world.
The author of several bestselling books, Geddes’ work has been published in over 80 countries, and her latest photographic series Under the Sea was released in 2014. She is currently photographing a new series based on the signs of the Western Zodiac.
