Wisconsin Women in Government hosted its 2019 Scholarship and Recognition Gala at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center on Lake Monona. WWIG presented this year’s gala in partnership with the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership and the Wisconsin Historical Society, as they celebrated the 100th anniversary of Wisconsin’s ratification of the 19th Amendment.
The keynote speaker for this event was Kristen Soltis Anderson, a pollster and co-founder of Echelon Insights, a research and analytics firm. She was one of TIME‘s “30 Under 30 Changing the World” and has been featured as one of ELLE‘s 2016 “Most Compelling Women in Washington.” Anderson is also an ABC News political contributor, columnist at The Washington Examiner, and is the co-host of The Pollsters, a bipartisan weekly podcast. She regularly appears on programs such as Morning Joe, Fox News Sunday, Real Time With Bill Maher and more.
