The March 8, 2017 On the Move Forum honors our collective intention to advance women. In 2017, we reinvented the historic 1977 Women’s conference to continue the dialogue, inspire action, and educate the next generation– all to salute those legacy leaders who pledged to advance women some 40 years ago and recognize those who continue the work today. The 1977 National Women's Conference was the FIRST FEDERALLY-FUNDED conference for, by and about women to identify and address women's issues. In 2017, we took new steps toward understanding more about women's history and taking an inclusive look at the diverse legacy of leadership.
SAVE the DATE - We invite you to join us for our March 2018 On the Move Forum and February 2018 Women of Color Symposium.
