Engage Her, Inc. – a non-profit organization focused on activating the voices of all women, particularly those from African American, Asian American Pacific Islander, Latino and other cultural communities – is hosting the first Multicultural Women’s Leadership Conference at the University of California, Berkeley, from April 25 to 26. More than 400 women from diverse communities across the U.S. have been invited to participate in workshops organized by their peers to find ways to create leaders for what in California is already the “New Majority” and will become the majority of the population in the rest of the nation by 2024.

Mable F. Yee, Engage Her founder & CEO, said the April conference would kick off what is becoming a new women’s movement. It is only fitting then, that the two-day event will be capped by “The Four Legends of Feminism:” Gloria Steinem, Dolores Huerta, Aileen Hernandez, and Yuri Kochiyama, in conversation with two future women leaders at the Scottish Rite Temple in Oakland, on April 26. This event is open to the public and tickets are available at www.engageher.org.  Conference co-sponsors include the California Women’s Legislative Caucus, the California Commission on the Status of Women, Women’s Media Center, The White House Project, Votolatino.org, the Dolores Huerta Foundation, NAACP, Momsrising.org, and The National Council for Research on Women. Lead conference sponsorship includes the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation.
