Special Events

Our annual event is a time-honored tradition. Recent speakers have included Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama and Kerry Washington just to name a few.

The 2022 Partnership in Action Celebration was a virtual and in-person recognition of women leaders from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences, to honor their unflinching commitment to justice, equity, and fairness.
