Heritage University is an institution founded by women and where women make up 70% of our student body; at Heritage, we are all about empowering women to make an impact in the world. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote. To commemorate this, we brought a panel of women leaders from across the state for a virtual event to educate and inspire women in our community.

Watch the recording!We’ve come a long way in the 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment. But there is still so much more that needs to be done to build true equality. We hope you enjoyed the stimulating discussion from a diverse group of women as we explored how we, as women, can come together to affect change and build opportunities for us all.
