Shift Happens: San Francisco Women’s Policy Summit

Moscone Center South
747 Howard Street
San Francisco


Executive Director Noreen Farrell will speak on a panel at the San Francisco Women’s Annual Policy Summit on April 14. The panel, “OG Warriors: Old School Wisdom for the Next Generation of Change Makers,” will start at 9:30 a.m. and will also feature speakers:

  • Olga Talamante, Executive Director Emeritus & Board Vice Chair, Chicana Latina Foundation
  • Hon. Dezie Woods-Jones, CEO and President, Black Women Organized for Political Action; Former Vice Mayor & Council Member, Oakland
  • Moderated by Emly Bermejo, Regional Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration


Panel Description: From our inability to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, to the ridiculous and continual need to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, to the recent revocation of reproductive freedoms, one thing is clear: despite some of our best efforts, there is still a lot of work left undone in our fight for gender equity.

As we stand on the shoulders of giants, how do we carry forward the torch of progress to light the path for those who will come after us? How do we leap across chasms of inequality, ensuring our march towards parity is inclusive, bold, courageous… successful?

Enter our OG venerable agents of change, each a beacon of resilience and wisdom with an unyielding commitment to women’s rights. In an era where the fabric of our society is still marred by threads of patriarchy, bias, and discrimination, these icons remind us that the battle for equality is far from over. They champion the notion that true progress requires a commitment to the long haul (after all, this is a marathon, not a sprint!) and an intersectional lens, recognizing the multifaceted nature of systems of oppression and the diverse lived experiences needed to dismantle them.

This important conversation will delve into proven strategies that propelled the women’s movement forward, while also serving as an urgent call to action to harness our collective power, to educate, to engage, and to mobilize around our continued pursuit for gender equality. The wisdom of these battle-tested warriors isn’t just a reflection of past triumphs and tribulations; it’s a roadmap for future freedom fighters to learn from and to follow.
