My firm, Control Point Group, was beyond thrilled to host the DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum yesterday evening to get more young women involved in the WLF.
I had the fabulous honor of introducing Amy Dacey, the DNC’s Executive Director, who had spoken at WGR’s “Frontline Females Make It Happen” PACs, Politics, and Grassroots Conference last month on a rock star opening panel I helped coordinate. What a force she is!
It was beyond exhilarating to have esteemed Democratic divas, like Carol Pensky, Christine Bennett, Edda Collins Coleman, Anatasia Dellaccio, Jo Ousterhout, Shaundra Patterson-Strachan, Alfreda Robinson, Stephanie Schlatter, and of course, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, next to several new faces and just feel the energy and excitement about WLF and the upcoming 2016 cycle.
I must repeat my opening remarks in hopes that those of you who couldn’t make it yesterday will read this: While we all love investing in our wardrobes and closets, the most important investment we can make as women is by supporting women running for political office and investing in WLF. Those Jimmy Choo’s are going to have to wait, because we’re choosing to invest in our future by investing in women running for office and WLF.
