About The Event

Join us on March 11th to celebrate International Women’s Day with an exciting virtual conversation. Hear from local womxn leaders who will discuss how we can all #ChoosetoChallenge gender bias, stereotypes and discrimination in our communities. The panel will also explore the intersectionality of gender and race—especially in light of how the pandemic has impacted womxn and BIPOC communities.

Panelists include Blessing Omakwu, Deputy Director of Goalkeepers at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Leslie Feinzaig, Female Founders Alliance CEO and Founder, and Tracy Rector, arts advocate and Managing Director of Storytelling at Nia Tero. The panel will be moderated by Mika Yamamoto, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer at F5. The event will also feature a poem by Mari Jones, a spoken word artist from Powerful Voices radio program.
