The theme for 2022 is The Collective Power of Women, which highlights the successes achieved when working together, lifting each other up, and creating better environments for all women.
“After the past few years of groundbreaking moments for women in politics, the work continues to fight for equitable pay, union standards and representation,” said Yvette Nicole Brown, who is a member of EMILY’s List’s Board of Directors. “It is an honour to carry on that work with EMILY’s List and the dynamic women in politics and entertainment.”
“EMILY’s List is thrilled to have such an incredible lineup of women join us for our fifth annual panel,” added Laphonza Butler, president of EMILY’s List. “It’s so very important that we understand the power that we as women have when we use our platforms to demand more diversity in hiring, better pay, and more senior positions in these two high profile industries that for too long have been driven by men.”
