Community Talk Back

An Historic Date…June 10, 2019

Marking the day, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Wisconsin ratifying the 19th Amendment.  After viewing the 1995 PBS documentary One Woman, One Vote, we ask, “What is your commitment?”

The Community Talk Back was held at NO Studios in the Pabst Brewery Complex and was made possible with support from Rotary Club of Milwaukee along with Dr. Karen J. Maroda.  Our gratitude…thank you.

We are committed to activating philanthropy

to advance equity for women.

About Our Organization

 

WHY IT MATTERS

Equity among people is a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

FACTS

In Wisconsin, men are 2.5 times more likely to be in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) occupations than women.

Although the number of women in the U.S. Congress has reached an all-time high, more women need those roles. If trends continue at the current rate, women will not hold an equal share of seats until the year 2117. We can’t wait that long…

You're Invited to Attend One Woman, One Vote ~ Virtually!

Our Community Talk Back originally planned in March, has been rescheduled for June 10th! As we continue to protect our families and community by staying at home and social distancing, this event is virtual. The theme for this Community Talk Back is INCLUSIVENESS and the importance of ensuring everyone feels welcome to vote.
