Helen LaKelly Hunt

Founder and President, HLH Family Foundation

Helen LaKelly Hunt is founder and president of the HLH Family Foundation, a private foundation in Dallas, TX dedicated to fostering a world where we each grow to relate with greater justice, kindness, and humility in our relationships with one another. She is one of a small army of women who helped to seed the women’s funding movement. She co-founded the Texas Women’s Foundation, The New York Women’s Foundation, Women’s Funding Network and Women Moving Millions. Helen is the author of Faith and Feminism: A Holy Alliance. Her latest book, And the Spirit Moved Them, The Lost Radical History of America’s First Feminists, shares the inspiring story of the abolitionist feminists. Helen was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 2001. In addition, she has co-authored several books with her partner, Harville Hendrix, on Imago Therapy, which helps transforms relationships. They are now working to disseminate Safe Conversations, a cutting-edge relational education process, that can help anyone shift from conflict to connection. Their work echoes in some ways Dr. Carol Gilligan and other feminist psychologists who have asserted for decades the importance of relational healing. Helen knows that for the first time, that the relational sciences are teachable, and that Safe Conversations can help contribute to what the feminist community has longed for, a more relational civilization.
