Women in Leadership Conference

September 26, 2008 | NeW Staff

On Saturday morning, I will be a part of the “Women in Politics” panel during the Women in Leadership Conference held at the University of Virginia.  This panel is open to the public, so you are invited to join us.

Here is a description of the panel.

Women in Politics:  Saturday, Sept. 27 at 9:00 a.m. – 10:15 a.m., Darden School

More than ever before, women — Republicans, Democrats and Independents — are making a difference in the American political arena and U.Va. alumnae are among those leading the way. Please join us for a panel discussion of the contemporary role of women in American politics. Potential topics include the groundbreaking inclusion of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on the 2008 Republican party presidential ticket, the historic candidacy of New York Senator Hillary Clinton in the 2008 presidential election, the influential role of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and the power of women voters in deciding the next president.

There are four of us on the panel and a moderator.
Karin Agness (College ’06, Law ’09) – Founder, Network of Enlightened Women

Jennifer McClellan (Law ’97) – Virginia House of Delegates, 71st District; Democratic National Committee

Ellen Qualls (College ’88) – Senior Advisor to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives
