- All In Together
With millions of women mobilizing in recent months to participate in Marches around the country, it might seem a political revolution is afoot. But the United States ranks 74th in the world for the political participation of women and much more will need to be done to close that gap. How can women, whatever their political affiliation, ensure their voices are heard in our democracy and why is it so important that women lead beyond the office and in the public domain? At this critical time, it’s never been more important to answer these questions and in this talk, Lauren lays out a path to practical action and impact that every women, no matter who they are, what they believe or what they do, can use.
- Crossing the Thinnest Line
The United States will soon be a minority majority nation yet it seems the polarization over issues of American identity has reached a new high. As more Americans come to appreciate the importance of our diversity to the economy, business and the social fabric of the nation, how can we build a more empathetic and inclusive nation while taking seriously the real differences among us? And how can we find ways to come together even in the face of divisive politics? It’s never been a more critical time to address these questions and find ways large and small to cross the lines that divide us.
