Celebrating Women with V&E Alum Amanda Edwards
“An Evening of Women’s Empowerment: The 2021 Women’s Renaissance”
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Vinson & Elkins is sponsoring the virtual program, “An Evening of Women’s Empowerment: The 2021 Women’s Renaissance,” on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, with V&E alum Amanda Edwards.
The program is part of “Be the Solution,” a community empowerment organization founded by Edwards, that seeks to engage, encourage, educate, and equip residents to “be the solution” in their respective communities. Edwards practiced law in V&E’s Corporate department in Houston and later went on to hold an elected position as a Houston City Council member. She also ran for U.S. Senate in 2020.
The March 30 program provides a platform for trailblazing women in business and the community to share stories and perspectives of women who shatter glass ceilings. Speakers include leaders like former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Emily Cain (Executive Director of EMILY’s List), Mikaila Ulmer (Founder, Me & the Bees Lemonade), and Pastor Juanita Rasmus (St. John’s United Methodist Church) who will inspire attendees to be “whole” as they pursue their boldest dreams.
Join V&E for the free virtual event from 6:00-7:30 pm CDT. Register below and read more about the non-profit Be the Solution: Community Empowerment Organization here.
