The Spring 2014 Houston Summit: "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds - an Economic Agenda for Women and Families", hosted by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, will be in Houston Tuesday, March 18th, 2014 from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm at HISD's Young Women College Preparatory Academy 1906 Cleburne.
This Summit is a non political event designed exclusively for women ages 18 and over. Areas of focus for the summit include paycheck equality, work and life balance and childcare.
House Democrats are offering the When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families as an agenda that stands on the shoulders of what was accomplished at Seneca Falls by addressing the economic challenges facing women and families today.
Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives for the 113th Congress, is focused on strengthening America's middle class and creating jobs, reforming the political system to create clean campaigns and fair elections, enacting comprehensive immigration reform, and ensuring safety in America’s communities, neighborhoods and schools. From 2007 to 2011, Pelosi served as Speaker of the House, the first woman to do so in American history.
Sheila Jackson Lee is the U.S. Representative for Texas's 18th congressional district, serving since 1995. The district includes most of inner-city Houston.
Doors open and registration begins at 11:00 am. You must be registered to attend.
