Description

Please join us as we once again gather to commemorate the Legacy and Promise of our beloved 19th Amendment, the Amendment that in 1920 secured the right to vote for American Women. This is one party you won’t want to miss!

*President's Medal Awards to Samantha Snabes (Rice University; aerospace entrepreneur), Dr. Carolyn Sumners (Houston Museum of Natural Science), and Dr. Shannon Walker (NASA).

*Lite bite buffet and cocktail hour.

*Meet our Rising Stars Class of 2018-2019

*Brief program featuring reflections on Amendment 19.

*Special screening of the 2016 hit movie “Hidden Figures,” based on the real-life story of three remarkable African-American women, mathematicians who calculated trajectories at NASA in the 1950s and 1960s. Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe.

We are excited that this event coincides with the Grace Hopper Celebration, the world's largest gathering of women technologists. GHC 18 will be in Houston Sept. 26-28 and we look forward to joining forces with those of you in Houston for GHC.
