Action Alert | National Conference of State Legislatures' Legislative Summit Numbers Have Improved Since June

Last year, the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Legislative Summit started off with a b̶a̶n̶g̶ manel. We checked on their 2018 numbers in June, and they weren’t great. Now, things are looking up! Instead of a manel, the first general session will be led by 2 men and 1 woman, and the overall speaker numbers are edging closer to 50/50 with 57% men and 43% women (10% of whom are women of color). According to the website, there are still more speakers to be announced, so we’re hoping there are more women of color in the upcoming announcements.

Good for you @NCSLorg for adding women to the stage at #NCSLsummit. We’re hoping to see more women of color in upcoming announcements. #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-ncsl-legislative-summit-numbers-improved
