Carry the Spirit of Seneca Falls: Gender Parity in 2018 and Beyond

A Reception Commemorating the Anniversary of the First Women’s Rights Convention and Changing the State of Leadership Gender Parity in the Public and Private Sectors

Last year we asked what your leadership superpower was; this year we’ve got some armor for you to try on for size.

Join us at our annual fundraiser at sculptor Linda Stein’s studio in New York City July 18th.

Help us carry the spirit of the Seneca Falls women forward by ensuring women are at every table decisions are made. Become a part of the deepest cultural change of all: 50% women leadership in every sector.

Support our signature program, 50 Women Can Change The World, a new kind of infrastructure that connects women throughout single industries--nonprofits, health, media and entertainment, finance and more into powerful networks of change and support.

Add your voice to a rousing discussion about the powerTO we all have: to collaborate, change our world, and achieve gender parity by 2025.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

Gloria Feldt is the Co-Founder and President of Take The Lead, has been an advocate for women for forty years. A former teen mom, her hard work and natural leadership abilities led her to a 30-year career at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, including a 10-year stint as its national president and CEO. People Magazine has called her “the voice of experience,” and Vanity Fair named her one of America’s “Top 200 Women Legends, Leaders, and Trailblazers.”

When she discovered that women have been stuck at 18 percent of top leadership positions for two decades, she knew she had to find a way to change that. The result: she wrote the bestselling book No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power to give women practical Power Tools that break down their unconscious barriers to greater personal and professional success. In 2014, she founded Take The Lead, an initiative to bring women to leadership parity by 2025.


Linda Stein–artist, activist, educator, performer and writer–is the Founding President of Have Art: Will Travel! Inc., a non-profit which offers exhibitions and education on positive, authentic expression of gender and gender fluidity, combatting the sexism often perpetuated by art. Her work has been permeated by the concept of protection for the past three decades. Other series Stein has developed include collage portraits of female superheroes and of courageous women of the Holocaust.

A socially engaged artist, she has appeared on more than twenty TV programs and in numerous radio and print media, including CNN, CBS, ABC Nightline and World News, Rolling Stone Magazine, Us Weekly, Slate, Newsweek Magazine, London Times, Us Magazine, BBC News, and more.
