Imagine 5,000 women and supportive men gathered in Washington, DC to celebrate the progress women have made and explore the challenges yet to come. That was the intense energy at last week’s United State of Women Summit convened by the White House Council on Women and Girls. Headlined by President Obama and Vice President Biden, the summit covered key gender equity issues including gender-based violence, women and the economy, entrepreneurship and innovation, and women’s leadership and civic engagement. Rob Valente, The Hotline’s chief officer of government affairs, and I represented The Hotline in both planning and presenting at the summit.
