Speaker Series

The Pink Agenda Speaker Series presents young breast cancer survivors Samantha Golkin Nigliazzo and Nicole Seagriff as they put a personal and more tangible spin on breast cancer, the importance of vigilance for young women, how to screen, and survival of the disease. Through personal diagnosis and survival stories, quirky anecdotes and informative handouts, Samantha and Nicole work to educate, inform, inspire and motivate young professional women.

Did we mention that they are also members of The Pink Agenda's Board of Directors?  

Launched in late 2014, we've already reached more than 500 men and women, visiting women's corporate groups, young professionals groups, colleges, offices, fraternities and sororities, and community organizations. Past seminars have been held at NBC Women's Network, Estée Lauder, Boston University, UPenn Panhellenic Council, Duke Unviersity, Harvard University, Weil Gotshal, Cushman & Wakefield, and more. 


Who would benefit from a Speaker Series lecture? Everyone! Our most common participants are young women, but we have also held seminars for mixed groups, professionals, and youth and their parents.

Is there a cost? No! We are passionate about raising awareness and care about this cause. We'll find a date that works and then travel to you. We just ask that you supply the participants and a space for us to present.

Is any equipment required? We have a fantastic visual presentation that we use to guide our discussion, so a large screen of some kind is preferred. We can send the digital file to you ahead of time.

How long is the presentation? We suggest at least an hour to ensure we have time for quality discussion and Q&A.
