Speakers GALCON 2020:

More fantastic CLE Speakers, ANNOUNCED SOON! 

 

KEY NOTE SPEAKER: Lilly Ledbetter

YES, THAT Lilly Ledbetter

For over ten years, initiated by filing a civil lawsuit in 1998 against her employer, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, Lilly Ledbetter fought to close the gap between women’s and men’s wages. Ledbetter initially won a jury verdict of over $3 million for her discrimination suit, but in 2007 the U.S. Supreme Court later overturned the lower court’s ruling. Despite her SCOTUS defeat, Ledbetter continued her fight: lobbying Capitol Hill until the Supreme Court decision was finally nullified on January 29, 2009, when President Obama signed into law the first new law of his administration: the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. In 2012, Ms. Ledbetter published her memoir: Grace and Grit. Her book tells her compelling personal story of growing up poor in the rural south, working hard for a company that was systematically cheating her, fighting back so that hopefully no woman at Goodyear would suffer that same fate, and - as you know - ultimately fighting, and winning, for all women in the United States. EVERY REGISTRANT WILL BE GIVEN A COPY OF HER BOOK, as well as an opportunity to meet her, have her personally sign the book, and be photographed with this icon of equal pay in America. It's not just hype to say, YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS. You won't want to miss HER.
