2021 LEAD Summit

“Women Leading in the Next 100 Years”

2020 gave us many challenges, but it also gave us the opportunity to celebrate the Women’s Suffrage Centennial. One hundred years ago in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, granting women the right to vote. The passage of this amendment was the culmination of a movement that took decades to realize.

This historic milestone caused us to reflect on the progress women have made this century and rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of full equality for women and girls. We continue to build on the legacy of countless women, celebrated or anonymous, who have contributed so much to the strength and spirit of our country.

This non-partisan, educational event was held online in 2021.
