The Fempire 2020: Running to Win conference will bring together female leaders of business and politics for a day of candid, educational, and inspirational conversation. In this unique inflection point in America’s history and politics, it is more important than ever to galvanize a new generation of women to engage with their communities and take charge of their civic duty. We hope to demonstrate the myriad ways in which young women (and allies) can take part in the democratic process, and catalyze the change we hope to see in the U.S. and beyond. Fempire will examine topics including: the many faces of civic engagement, how women can shape policy decisions in the workplace and in the legislature, how to engineer equality in companies and on Capitol Hill, and lessons from the campaign trail.
This year, Yale also celebrates the 50th anniversary of co-education.
