The Polly Wheeler Guth ’44 Leaders in Residence program provides an exceptional opportunity to learn from women who shape the world - culturally, socially, artistically, and politically. Hearing their stories, their ideas, and their voices provides a remarkable window through which our girls can begin to envision their own future.

Reshma Saujani, Founder & CEO of Girls Who Code

These girls are just incredibly compassionate, and they’re leaders. They are thoughtful and they are smart. I hope to vote for them one day - or invest in their companies, donate to their nonprofits, and see them because I think you have just trained a generation of leaders.

Beyond Speeches

These women don't simply stand behind a podium and deliver prepared remarks when they visit our boarding school in Virginia. Their time with us is much more intimate than that. They meet and converse with students in class, in small-group discussions, over meals, as well as in the lecture hall. Our students prepare by working together in intensive study groups and presenting informative presentations to the entire school community prior to the visits.
A girls' boarding and day school in southern Virginia, Chatham Hall prepares girls for college and for productive lives. Our innovative academic program offers advanced courses, global study and travel, as well as project-based learning. We foster the intellect and character of each student and, through our Honor Code, live in a community of trust. Grounded in its Episcopal heritage, the school welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds.
