Skoll World Forum
The value of women’s leadership in American democracy is being challenged by hyperpartisanship and extreme, conservative women. Today, intersections of racial justice and the weaknesses of our democratic systems require deeper analysis of the impact of gender in democracy. Leaders ready to close the divide must understand & navigate these complexities & systemic inequities in our history (and identity) to move us forward. Women, especially of color, are at the heart of America’s most progressive movements & reforms, from labor to civil rights to today’s voter surge. The workshop will center a new gendered analysis around racial justice and systemic reforms as the solution to today’s challenges & rebuild trust with leaders on the front lines.
