Women in Politics Panel Discussion

March 3, 2014 | Medgar Evers College

The Medgar Evers College (MEC) celebration of Women’s History Month kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday, March 4th, as the Center for Women’s Development, in collaboration with the Department of Public Administration, hosts a lively panel discussion which will explore the progress that women have made and the stumbling blocks they still face in the field of politics.

Panelists for this forum include, Liliana Gil Valetta (Political Strategist and Commentator), Andrea Shapiro Davis (Associate Vice Chancellor for Corporate, Foundation and Major Gift in The City University of New York), who formerly served as Executive Director of the NYC Commission on Women’s Issues under the Bloomberg Administration, and Rosemonde Pierre-Louis (Mayor De Blasio’s Commissioner on Domestic Violence and the former Deputy Manhattan Borough President). The moderator for this discussion will be our very own Esmeralda Simmons, Director of Center for Law and Social Justice.

Come out and get to know who the women leaders are in our community.  Listen to what they are doing to bring forth change.  Engage with the panelists by voicing your thoughts and concerns and suggestions.  We encourage you to join us in this dialogue and the reception that follows this event.
