LANSING – For the first time in Michigan’s history, women hold the majority of our top elected leadership positions. To mark International Women’s Day, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democratic Leader of the Michigan House of Representatives Donna Lasinski and Chief Justice Bridget Mary McCormack will come together for a conversation about women’s leadership.
The event will be held via Livestream on Wednesday, March 10, from 3:30 to 4 p.m., and it will be moderated by Michigan Women’s Commission Chair Muna Jondy and Commissioner Charity Dean
The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 – a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – is #ChooseToChallenge.
Those who join this gathering of Michigan’s elected leadership will hear how they “choose to challenge” professionally and personally, and how they strive to elevate women professionally and create more pathways toward female leadership.
