Happy Women’s Equality Day! Today, August 26, 2020, marks 100 years since women won the right to vote. While we have a lot to celebrate, women still have a long way to go in having an equal voice. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. WIRLC’s Ashley Chiaradio took a deeper look at women’s equality in the workplace, including women’s strides toward pay equity, in this article featured in today’s Inner Circle.

Speaking of celebrating and lifting up women, we have a ton of amazing female executives and industry leaders coming your way (virtually)! Join us TODAY at 11:00 a.m. ET for an all-female lineup during the August installment of our Women in Retail and Total Retail Virtual Exchange. The following incredible ladies will be taking the (virtual) stage:

  • Marla Beck, CEO and Co-Founder, Bluemercury
  • Kim Lefko, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Ace Hardware (Interviewed by Sucharita Kodali, Vice President, Principal Analyst, Forrester)
  • Amy Errett, CEO and Founder, Madison Reed
  • Kelly Cook, Chief Marketing and IT Officer, David’s Bridal, and Laura Maness, CEO, Havas New York
