California Sen. Kamala Harris to headline women’s summit in Cincinnati, hosted in part by Sherrod Brown

CINCINNATI, Ohio — California Democratic U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris will headline a free public summit next month for Ohio women, hosted in part by Ohio Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.

‘The Women’s Leadership Summit: Together We Rise,’ is Oct. 6 at Xavier University in Cincinnati, according to a news release. Harris is scheduled to give the keynote address of the one-day luncheon and event, now in its fourth year.

Participants can also expect to hear from southwest Ohio women about the work they’re doing to improve their communities: elected officials, women in working in non-profits and business leaders. 

“This is a great opportunity for us to come together and discuss the challenges facing women across the country, share ideas, and be inspired,” Harris said in a statement released by Brown’s office.

“I’m looking forward to returning to Cincinnati for the fourth annual Women’s Leadership Summit, bringing participants together to learn more about the inspiring ways local leaders are helping Ohio grow and thrive,” Brown said in a news release.

The event is open to anyone who registers. Lunch is included, and free childcare is available.
