Amplifying Voices: Embracing Difference and Changing the Rules
Friday, Feb. 26, 2021
Noon-2 p.m. MST
Women’s voices have often been muted, overlooked, or discounted. When women are invited to the table, they are often expected to conform to the dominant culture, which narrows impact and opportunity. This is especially true for women of color. The 2021 Edie Kochenour Memorial Event will draw from the wisdom of leaders who are working tirelessly to advance women. The panel will explore strategies to embrace difference and reconstruct existing systems to amplify the voices of those who have long been invisible. Register at Eccles.link/ediepanel.
