PANEL: What Do Women Owe Each Other? Sisterhood in the Digital Age
Friday, June 11, 2021
1:30pm - 2:15pm (Central)

It seems every day we are asked to decide how to respond to a controversy, counter misinformation or right a wrong. Should we do more for other women while we're at it? Pate will walk us through a facilitated conversation about what women owe each other. Join us for a guided conversation, questions and breakout room discussions with fellow NFPW members.
