Celebrate Women’s Equality Day

August 25, 2020 at 12:00 am

RTI was pleased to welcome Chief Justice Cheri Beasley as our guest speaker for our 2020 Women’s Equality Day event. She is the 29th Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court and the first Black woman to serve as Chief Justice of the state’s highest Court.

The program featured a conversation with Duren Banks and Tim Gabel about RTI’s Applied Justice Research program in the context of women’s equality.

The event, which is sponsored by the Women’s Advancement, Leadership, and Success (WALS) ERG in collaboration with the Global Gender Center,  celebrated 100 years of U.S. women’s right to vote and promote continued efforts to ensure women’s full and equal participation in the workplace and civic life.
