WHO: New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson partners with The Women’s Campaign School at Yale University to produce a non-partisan symposium dedicated to empowering women to run for political office, with an emphasis on the intersection of politics and spirituality.

Its goal is to promote gender equality in political leadership, at a time when the US Congress is comprised of only 16.8 percent women, and State legislatures are comprised of 23.6 percent women.

8440 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90211 (323) 655-0111
