Galvanize NM Gathers on December 1st
December 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0$50.00
The Galvanize New Mexico event is just days away! Join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at the University of New Mexico Student Union Building for a full day of programming and performances. We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by Tina Tchen (co-founder, Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund and Former Chief of Staff to FLOTUS Michelle Obama) as our keynote speaker.
The Galvanize Program allows participants to explore gender equality issues and a broad set of national and local policies that impact women and their communities. By bringing together women and girls working on these issues across New Mexico, we’ll ensure they have the connections and training they need to continue to impact their communities and build stronger bonds to work together. We will focus on training women in entrepreneurship, organizing, and leadership. This year, we’re arming women with the tools and resources they need to keep organizing and fighting for gender equity, whether that’s through elected office, entrepreneurship, grassroots organizing, and everything in between.
The exhilarating and jam-packed day of programming will feature local and national speakers such as Giovanna Rossi (Collective Action Strategies), Pamelya Herndon, Cecilia Chavez (New Mexico Girl Scouts), and Denicia Cadena (Young Women United), as well as performances from local artists such as Burque Revolt and Ashley Moyer. Attendees will also receive in-depth and skills-based training developed by local and national partner organizations on tracks such as activism and organizing; entrepreneurship; and leadership.
