On Monday, April 1st at 7:30pm Dr. Jane Goodall, World-Renowned Primatologist and Conservationist, will be speaking at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House as part of the Unique Lives & Experiences series and Work Options for Women will be the night’s beneficiary.
Dr. Goodall began her landmark study of chimpanzees at the Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Reserve in Tanzania in June 1960 under the mentorship of famed anthropologist and paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey. Her study opened our eyes to the complexity and richness of chimpanzee communities and forced us to reconsider our relationship to other species. In 1977 Dr. Goodall established the Jane Goodall institute, a global organization supporting research, education, community development and conservation. In 2002, Dr. Goodall was appointed UN Minister of Peace and in 2004 was awarded England’s highest honor, Dame of the British Empire.
Dr. Goodall has accepted an invitation to speak at the Unique Lives & Experiences series, which was developed in response to women’s requests for intellectual entertainment and provides them with a forum for meaningful dialogue and stimulating interaction. Unique Lives & Experiences is a very special lecture series designed to motivate, challenge and enlighten anyone with an open mind and a strong desire to learn from the personal experiences of distinguished speakers.
On April 1st, Dr. Goodall will reflect on the incredible insights her research has offered into our closest animal relatives and the extraordinary change the world has seen since she first began her research in 1960. She will also discuss current threats facing the planet, the need for change, and her reasons for hope.
A percentage of the proceeds from the night’s ticket sales will support Work Options for Women.

Since many of the issues to be addressed in this legislative session affect the women we serve, we thought we would share the report with our supporters. Click here to access the report and read about how women may be affected by these proposed changes.
