Event Description

Hello Austin!

Join us for ONE Austin's FIRST INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY RECEPTION is meant to do three things:

1. Honor and recognize YOU!, Austin's women leaders in the many different sectors of the city: non-profit, business, education, law and medicine;

2. Provide all guests the opportunity to mingle and network with other women in the community that are also contributing a significant amount to the Austin community; and

3. Recognize the significant role of women around the world, particularly in the poorest areas of the world, like in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Among our honored guests, will be Dr. Carolyn J. Heinrich, Sid Richardson Professor of Public Affairs at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs; and The Truman Project's Make US Strong Campaign Spokeswoman Janessa Goldbeck.
Dr. Heinrich’s research focuses on social welfare policy, public management and performance management, and econometric methods for social-program evaluation.Dr. Heinrich is the author/co-author of more than fifty peer-reviewed publications, with recent articles appearing in Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, Health Services Research, World Development, among several others. Prior to her appointment at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Heinrich was the Director of the La Follette School of Public Affairs and Associate Director of Research and Training at the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Truman Project's Make US Strong Campaign Spokeswoman Janessa Goldbeck. Ms. Goldbeck launched a 3-month, 4200 mile-solo Cycle for Security Tour across the United States meeting with key leaders and community groups advocating for smarter investments into development programs as key to our national security strategy. We are looking forward to honoring you in this reception for all your contributions and leadership in our community- locally and globally.
