Let Her Rise: A Conversation on Workplace Equity for Women

Thank you to Deesha Dyer, Congresswoman Alma Adams, and all of our incredible sponsors and guests for joining us for Let Her Rise!

It's 2018 and women are speaking up and changing the world, yet they still lag behind men in terms of salary, advancement, and other markers of success.

Please join the North Carolina Justice Center for a luncheon about how companies and local governments are pursuing policy changes that better support women and allow them to thrive and advance in the workplace.

  • Former Social Secretary for the Obama Administration Deesha Dyer will be the keynote speaker for this special event. She has an inspiring story about her career and the importance of workplace equity for women.
  • Congresswoman Alma Adams will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her commitment to the advancement of equity for women in the workplace.

Join us for this special event!
