Gender matters in charitable giving - as women, we contribute our financial resources and time differently than men. We play a significant role in improving our communities and focusing energy on our most pressing societal problems. So, how are we, as women, making decisions about how, where and when to give? How do we see ourselves as "philanthropists" or "fundraisers"? Our panelists will share their insights, expertise, and journeys in the world of philanthropic giving, and inspire us to harness our power in new ways.

Leahy, Sanders And Welch Back Legislation To Restore Net Neutrality

In a joint statement, Leahy, Sanders, and Welch said: “A free and open internet is essential to our economy, a free flow of ideas, creativity, and participatory democracy. The Administration’s decision to repeal net neutrality is bad for our democracy and bad for consumers and entrepreneurs, especially in rural areas, and a gift to the big telecom companies who can now pick and choose who has access to the internet and at what speed. Our legislation will reverse this anti-consumer move and ensure that the internet remains open and accessible to all Americans.”
