Day One will engage women, girls, and allies from across the country through inspiring mainstage sessions, issue-breakouts, opportunities to connect with leading fellow changemakers, and an interactive center with organizations and women-owned businesses. You’ll choose 2 breakouts on Saturday: 1 from Session A and 1 from Session B. When you’re not in your breakouts, you’ll be able to take a break for lunch and explore The Center, where over 150 organizations and businesses are hosting activations!

On Day Two, attendees will fan out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or Community Teach-In’s hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles. Please keep an eye out for an email from your Day Two Host with location instructions.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Can I afford child care? Will I be able to stay home to care for my new baby? Will I get fired if I miss work because I have the flu? Is he making more than I am? Is my paycheck enough to cover my bills? These may be the issues that keep *each* of us up at night, but the reality is, we’re *all* grappling with them. When you add them together, the effects of these pocketbook issues can equal poverty for women. This panel of experts will discuss the roadmap that gets us from economic struggle to economic security.
