Post-Election Roundup: Running in the Year of the Woman

Women dominated the 2018 midterm election primaries and more than 170 first-time women candidates have won their party’s nomination to run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representative or U.S. Senate. This wave of female candidates is historic and could result in the highest number of women ever elected to office in the United States.

Please join ChIPs and Akin Gump as we discuss the results of this year’s Midterms, its implications on policy and business and what this election means to women.
