Our annual gala is a time-honored tradition. Past speakers include Kerry Washington, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to name a few.

Please join us for our 2020 Gala Dinner!

Washington, D.C.

The National Partnership’s annual event is a time-honored Washington tradition celebrating all we have accomplished together for women and families while looking toward the critical work ahead.

We are thrilled to announce that Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Now and the TIME’S UP Foundation, will be joining us as a distinguished honoree.

Tina has worked for decades to advance gender equality, particularly for working women. Whether through public service or in private legal practice, she is a tireless champion for gender equity, diversity, and inclusion, and she has become a role model for women and girls everywhere. We are proud to partner with Tina and TIME’S UP in the fight to end sexual harassment and discrimination.

We will share more information soon. In the meantime, please mark Thursday, June 4 on your calendars and invite your friends and colleagues!
