UTEP President Heather Wilson will participate in a panel on building a just and fair society during The Hill’s “Century of the Woman” virtual event Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020.
“Century of the Woman” will bring together women leaders and decision-makers to discuss progress and the barriers that remain.
The event, taking place over three sessions, will explore and celebrate the strides made in women's rights in the past century while exposing the lack of true equality and the daily challenges women continue to face today.
Wilson will speak on a panel titled, “A Society of Equals,” which will focus on how to build a society in which we all want to live. She is one of 19 national leaders who will participate in the day’s panels.
Other panelists include Elaine Chao, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation; Sheila Ronning, CEO and founder of Women in the Boardroom; and Christine Todd Whitman, former Governor of New Jersey.
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
The Hill is a Washington, D.C.-based print and online news outlet that reports on the business of Washington, the inner-workings of Congress and the nexus between politics and business.
