Event description
The WREN Summit is an event for all who are ready to Mobilize the Movement!

About this Event

The Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network (WREN) will host the fourth annual state-wide summit on April 6th, 2020 at the Columbia Museum of Art in downtown Columbia.

This year, join us as we hear from a diverse group of community leaders on how they advocate in pursuit of gender and social equity in South Carolina. We are “Mobilizing the Movement” by assembling a diverse group of speakers and panelists to discuss critical issues ranging from pay equity, to freedom from violence, to workplace protections and a host of other issues. Our goal is to highlight those who are already making a difference in the field, and to amplify the voices of those who are often under-recognized.

Keynote Speaker:

WREN is excited to announce New York Times Bestselling author Rebecca Traister as the 2020 Summit keynote speaker! Traister has written about women in politics, media, and entertainment from a feminist perspective and is the mind behind acclaimed works like All the Single Ladies, and, most recently, Good and Mad.

Traister, an award-winning journalist and author, has become a leading voice on feminism and women in politics. Her writing has also sparked conversations on how the 2008 election reopened discussions of gender, generational differences, feminism, and sexism across party lines. Separately, Traister has written on how historically low rates of marriage can be a catalyst for massive social change.

Additional agenda and speaker announcements to follow.
