In 2016, the wildly successful Women in Green Power Breakfast focused on The Power of Our Voice. We examined the roles women play across society as influencers, entrepreneurs, leaders and voters. We took a close look at the impact women have when they step up and define culture politically, professionally, socially and domestically. We explored the power of women voters who join together, and women who run for office to turn opinions into action, women who embrace the fact that a rising tide lifts all boats and seek opportunities to elevate others. The electoral process in the United States demands that we speak up; our words are our common political currency, sometimes our voices are our only means of civic engagement. Around the world, with or without significant wealth, education or status, every woman can raise her voice and raise awareness about the issues that matter most.
Women are change agents; in business, in education, in healthcare, in technology and cutting-edge research, in service of our common defense, in government and in our homes. Without the powerful voices of women seeking change, so much progress would be stifled or delayed. We hope you were able to join us as we heard from groundbreaking women who called upon attendees to speak up as individuals and as a group to achieve change in the workplace and the country.
