Whether you attend one of our events, join our conversations on social media, watch our speaker highlights or gather with your own circle to talk, my hope is that you will broaden your horizon, become informed and act on your knowledge. That can be as simple as sharing something you learned with a friend, giving of your time to advance women and girls, or even supporting a cause that speaks to you. We live in this world together. Together as women we must care for it and each other. Truly, the circle begins with each one of us.


Thank you for joining us.

Living Younger, Healthier, Longer: the new science of aging

Today, telomeres and telomerase are thought to play central roles in aging and diseases such as cancer, and are the focus of entire new fields of research. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009 for discovering the molecular nature of telomeres, the ends of chromosomes that serve as protective caps essential for preserving genetic information, and for co-discovering telomerase, an enzyme that maintains telomere ends. In 2017, Blackburn became a New York Times bestselling author with the release of The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer. Written with health psychologist Elissa Epel, the book explains the science of aging and habits to live well.


In addition to the Nobel Prize, Blackburn has received nearly every major award in science, including the Lasker, Gruber and Gairdner prizes. She was named to the TIME 100 in 2007 and is a member of numerous prestigious scientific societies, including the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine and the Royal Society of London. Blackburn leads the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” 

Margaret Mead

inher circle is a dynamic organization that informs, inspires and empowers women by hosting conversations with pivotal women leaders from around the world.

​We began as a small group of like-minded women who wanted to learn about and discuss issues that affect women and girls. Since then, inher circle has grown into a community of women committed to improving the future of women and girls both locally and globally. We are an inclusive community where women share ideas and experiences, connect with others, and leave enriched and inspired.
