Scenes from MYD’s 3rd Annual Engendering Progress!


Thanks to everyone who came to Engendering Progress!

Nearly 200 people packed into Greenhouse on March 21st to join MYD in honoring some amazing women and their inspiring work: Pamela Barnes, President and CEO of EngenderHealth; Rachel Soares, Senior Associate of Research at Catalyst; and Emily May, Co-founder and Executive Director of Hollaback!, who is working with the City Council to connect Hollaback! apps to New York City’s 311 system.

We also got to hear from another great advocate for New York City women, City Councilmember Jessica Lappin, who was our keynote speaker.
