The YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago will host TABOO on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 5:30pm at the Public Hotel in Chicago.
My longtime #GirlPolitics pal Christie Hefner will moderate. The panel will include Dr. Lauren Streicher (author of Love Sex Again), and Maggie Anderson, author of Our Black Year. No doubt, we’ll have fun and be provocative.
If you’re in-town, I hope you will join us. If not, let your friends who are know we’re around, in case they want to join in the fun.
All the best.
I’m off to another M state. This time, it’s Minnesota.
Likely, the temps will be a lot cooler than Mississippi’s, but the people just as warm. In fact, I know this is the case, since I will be visiting with Carleton College friends-of-decades and their great women-leader pals.
Thanks to Beverly Jones Heydinger, chair of the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (and great friend since freshman year Carleton College!), for providing the impetus for this evening’s gathering at womenwinning.org, to include the terrific Erin Murphy, Majority Leader of the Minnesota House of Representatives. If you’re around and free, do join us. Here are the detes:

Saturday, I’m off to speak at the TEDx conference organized and hosted by alma mater, Carleton College. Hats’-off to Emily Balczewski, who produced it. To watch my TEDx talk live on Saturday morning, click here.
Best wishes for a wonderful day (sure is perfect today in Chicago for YWCA LeaderLuncheon, just as it should be for such a great organization.)
