Young Women's Town Hall: What matters to young women voters in the 2020 Presidential election?

Young women vote at a 7% higher rate than their male peers. If all eligible young women voted, you would have the power to determine every single election. Politico wants to hear from you: the next generation of female voters. What issues do you care about? Which candidates do you like and why? What do these candidates need to prioritize to garner the young woman’s vote. Brought to you by media partner Women Rule POLITICO.
  • Quadira Coles, Fellow, IGNITE
  • Savannah Lane, Communications Manager, Turkish Heritage Organization
  • Gabriela Meza, Media Intern, National Park Service

Plenary: Disrupting fashion - How the founders of Universal Standard built a successful brand that takes size out of the equation

Hear from entrepreneur and CEO Polina Veksler as she discusses the impetus for Universal Standard as well as how women can maintain their personal style and authenticity as they embrace ambition.
