Updated On: Apr 10, 2018
President Elise Bryant participated in a panel at the Women in the World Salon on March 7th and brought the issues of working women and the racism that exists in our society to the forefront on the eve of International Women’s Day. The effect of her remarks were obvious; young women, women of color, union women and others surrounded her at the event’s conclusion wanting her to know the impression she made on them.
The 'PerSisters' panel with Zainab Salbi, Author, Media Commentator and the Founder of Women for Women International moderated a conversation with former Marine fighter pilot and Democratic candidate for Congress in Kentucky, Amy McGrath, “powerhouse union leader and women’s rights organizer Elise Bryant “ and conservative columnist Mona Charen, who called out Trump and sexual harassment at CPAC, creating an uproar.
This salon precedes a three – day Women in the World Summit scheduled for April 12-14, 2018 at Lincoln Center in New York City. The summit “ presents powerful new female role models whose personal stories illuminate the most pressing international issues. They range from CEOs and world leaders to artists, activists, peacemakers, and firebrand dissidents.”
