2023 Women in Public Leadership Event

Please join the Committee of Seventy for our Second Annual Women in Public Leadership Event. The event will feature a timely and important conversation on the vital role the media plays in a democracy. Dr. Kerry Sautner, Chief Learning Officer for the National Constitution Center, will moderate the discussion between Errin Haines, Editor-at-Large and Founder of the 19th*; Lisa Hughes, publisher & CEO of The Philadelphia Inquirer; and Sarah Glover, VP of News & Civic Dialogue at WHYY to discuss their path to leadership, how news organizations can strengthen democracy, and the challenges and opportunities their industries face in light of the heightened partisanship facing our nation. These women are uniquely situated to provide insight into how we can best communicate about the importance of protecting democracy and election integrity. C70 will also honor renowned civic leader, Sharmain Matlock-Turner, CEO of the Urban Affairs Coalition, for her tireless work advancing social and economic justice, promoting voter engagement, and advocating for the rights of marginalized communities. With the Civic Leadership Award we recognize her significant contributions to C70, Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania.

The event is also an opportunity to connect with leaders across the private, public and
nonprofit sectors, and also create opportunities for emerging women leaders.

Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, BNYMellon, and all of our generous supporters for making this event possible. 

We hope you will be able to join us!
