Once again, we’ll be celebrating trailblazing women past and present. We are so excited to announce our keynote speaker - Jill Wine-Banks. You may have seen Jill on TV as an MSNBC legal analyst or listened to her as a co-host of the #SistersInLaw and iGenPolitics podcasts. She is also the author of The Watergate Girl (being developed as a movie), about her days as one of the prosecutors during the Watergate scandal. She has a trailblazing and inspiring story to share that you don’t want to miss.
We are also excited to have the Honorable Nancy Rotering, Mayor of Highland Park, as a featured speaker. She is the first woman to be elected as Highland Park’s mayor, reforming city government and building a culture of transparency, collaboration, and ethics during her tenure. In 2013, after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Nancy led the effort to ban military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines in Highland Park, a fact all the more poignant given the tragedy that occurred during the 2022 Highland Park Independence Parade.
