Elevating the Standing of Women

How is it that the ERA never passed? Why are under 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs women? How do we get more women into office? Is it time for all of this to change?  Join us for a discussion of policy and legal initiatives that can elevate all women, improve our political and financial institutions, and increase human happiness. Let’s make a plan for how we become the world we aspire to be. Hosted by Joan Blades, co-founder of Move On, Moms Rising and Living Room Conversations. With: Jessica Neuwirth, founder and Director of the ERA Coalition and Donor Direct Action; Kimberlé Crenshaw, co-founder and Executive Director of the African American Policy Forum; Betsy McKinney, founder and CEO of It’s Time Network.
