April Lunch Event
April Lunch Program
The #MeToo movement is a defining moment for women around the world–because it shines a spotlight on moments that have shaped us. This month, DWBC explores ways that we can create an ongoing conversation that will change our culture from an outcry for transparency and justice. Our panel includes experts on gender studies, victim advocacy, and work culture.
Rescheduled from March: Tim Howard of UV Analytics will deliver a short talk on framing progressive positions. Republicans have been winning the battle of framing/messaging and talking about values for decades. Meanwhile, as progressives, we tend to focus on logic, self-interest, and policy points–which are less persuasive to voters. Tim will give us some tips on how we take back control of political discourse.
Our Panel Discussion Includes the Following Advocates:
Lindsey Feitz: Director of Gender & Women’s Studies, University of Denver. Lindsey has over ten years experience teaching, publishing, and speaking to groups and community organizations about gender equity, diversity, and inclusive excellence.
Jessica Dotter: Deputy District Attorney, Boulder County District Attorney’s Office. She is currently working in the special victims unit, in charge of a caseload of approximately 30 active felonies, all of which involve serious crimes against children and women.
Christina James: Managing Partner, The Gemini Group. With both a law degree and a masters in social work, Christina’s business focuses on workplace assessments, diversity & inclusion and leadership coaching.
Rita Mahoney, Moderator: Rita is a past president of the Democratic Women of Boulder County. An expert in organizational communication, Rita has served in a series of leadership roles with the Peace Corps, including Chief of Operations for Europe, Mediterranean and Asia region.
