Our co-founders have been invited to Tokyo, Japan by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation to speak at a public forum discussing “Women and Politics in the Time of Trump." Kristin and Jessica will share their experience working with women political leaders over the last two decades and the current state of women's political leadership in the United States. They will also share their insights about the upswing of women running for political office in America in the wake of the last presidential election and how the #MeToo movement has impacted the conversation around women's rights in the United States and globally.
While there, Jessica and Kristin will also conduct a women's political leadership training for the newly formed Academy of Gender Parity and SPF. They will be training women who aspire to run for elected office in Japan.
