Celebrating the 19th Amendment & How We Can Accelerate Equality

Online • Orange County • August 19, 2020

Join EllevateOC for an evening of discovery and dialogue honoring the courageous women along with allies, whose tenacity ensured women won the right to vote in 1920 and what it means for women today.

Wednesday, August 19, 2020 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT

Celebrating the 19th Amendment Centennial!

Only a hundred years have passed since women won the right to vote. Join Ellevate OC for a "toast to tenacity" and lively discussion. 

Toast to Tenacity is a reference to the moment movement leader Alice Paul raised a glass of grape juice (it was Prohibition) to celebrate the 19th Amendment ratification.

There has been progress yet, not enough.  When the 19th Amendment became law in 1920 only white women were allowed to vote. It was decades later until Black women and women of color had the same opportunity to participate in the voting process. Inequities continue; we can and must do better. 

Enjoy a short presentation on the history of women and the vote with a candid conversation focused on accelerating equality with Judith Lukomski.

Judith Lukomski is the Founder and Chief Evolution Officer of Transitions Today; a progressive strategy, equity and organizational design consultancy. She is a lifelong advocate for advancing women in leadership, working with companies, institutions and social impact projects to create change. 

With an intersectional focus on closing the gender achievement and wealth gap Judith is the founding Co-President of the Ellevate Orange County Chapter and a National Delegate for Drexel University Vision 2020; a coalition of individuals and organizations in all 50 states working together for women's economic, political and social equality in the United States.
