Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the certification of the ratification of the 19th Amendment with a webinar conversation. The discussion will center on the past, present and future status of women's equality, with an opportunity to ask questions. The panelists include:

Carly Fiorina:  As a business luminary and leadership expert Carly has traveled a diverse professional journey, from secretary to CEO, from public to private, and from for-profit to non-profit. Throughout her robust career have been two constants: leadership and problem solving.
 
Dr. Elisabeth Griffith: Even during her 22-year tenure as Headmistress of the Madeira School, Elisabeth practiced history. Her biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who launched the suffrage movement, "In Her Own Right" (Oxford), inspired Ken Burns' PBS documentary, "Not for Ourselves Alone."

Charniele Herring:  It's been quite a journey for Charniele from spending nights in a homeless shelter in high school to becoming the majority leader in the Virginia House. Like the suffragists, she knows how to lead -- she was the first African American to be elected chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia. 
 
Victoria A. Lipnic: Growing up as the mayor's daughter in Carrolltown, PA, Victoria learned early about the importance of civic participation. While serving on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission she has been an advocate of equal pay and co-chaired the Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace.
