Annual Event

Join us for the 2023 Equity in Action celebration!

The 2023 Equity in Action celebration — in person on June 22, 2023 at La Vie in Washington, DC — will recognize trailblazers who are using the power of their individual platforms to drive transformational change for all women, to challenge inequities rooted in gender and racial biases, to maximize women’s participation in the economy and society, to protect women’s health, and to center women in the ongoing national dialogue about how best to move our nation forward.
