Yale SOM Student Conference: FEMPIRE 2020: Running to Win

Fempire2020: Running to Win will bring together female leaders of business and politics for a day of candid, educational, and inspirational conversation. In this unique inflection point in America’s history and politics, it is more important than ever to galvanize a new generation of women to engage with their communities and take charge of their civic duty. We hope to demonstrate the myriad ways in which young women (and allies) can take part in the democratic process, and catalyze the change we hope to see in the U.S. and beyond.
