Nollaig na mBan, or Women’s Christmas, is held each year in January throughout Ireland to celebrate women’s leadership within the family and community. We commemorate this tradition with a celebration spotlighting Irish American female leaders and the positive impact they have worldwide.

In January, the Partnership is delighted to virtually host and welcome these vanguards of women’s leadership. Our transatlantic supporters across the United States and in Ireland will enjoy an inspiring program with musical performances, special guest appearances, and messages of thanks. 

In honor of our speakers, proceeds of the Annual Nollaig na mBan Women’s Leadership Celebration will be donated to the Mary Robinson Centre, Ireland’s first Presidential Library and Museum, and to primary schools that have had an impact on our honorees lives.
