People Who Inspire Us: A 150th Anniversary Series
Mon, Oct 16, 7 pm ET, from $25
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s advice to women aspiring to succeed in politics or the workplace is simple: Know your motivation, and don’t be afraid to throw a punch. After more than two decades at the helm of the Democratic Party, the California Democrat who made history as the first and only woman to serve as House speaker and one of a few in history to hold the position twice, announced late last year that she was stepping down from leadership but would remain in Congress. The architect of generation-defining legislation, she played a central role in the passage of the Affordable Care act, the American Rescue Plan, the response to the Covid-19 pandemic and opposition to Republican former President Donald Trump. Join Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi in conversation with David Rubenstein as she discusses her next chapter, the future of the Democratic party, and the state of American politics. This series is made possible through the support of David Rubenstein.
