TIAA's World Vision sponsorship to help transform the lives of women worldwide 


On November 30, 2018 World Vision will host the 14th annual Strong Women Strong World Event in New York City.  Over 250 influential women and men will unite together to address the effect of extreme poverty on women and girls in developing communities with a focus on how World Vision – one of largest NGOs in the world – has the unparalleled ability to transform their lives so that they may live to their fullest potential, ultimately leading to healthier families, communities and nations across the globe.

TIAA is pleased to announce a partnership with TIAA Lifetime Member Kristin Weikel '99 to sponsor a table at this event to support an organization that transforms the lives of women around the world. As a "thank you" for their deeper financial commitment to TIAA, our Premier and Lifetime members have received their special invitation to join TIAA at the event with reserved seating (registration deadline is November 15).
