Advocating for Women’s Equality with Hannah-Beth Jackson, Former California Senator

Former Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson has made an indelible impact on us all through her courage and leadership. An expert in public policy and legislation, Hannah-Beth Jackson is an active advocate for women’s equality.

She has worked on a lot of legislative acts and been advocating for every woman from high school through to CEOs and leaders. That’s why episode 7 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about building a community you can be proud of and support!

In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Hannah-Beth Jackson is sharing the importance of a culture that’s better for everyone and actionable steps you can take right now to create that culture where you are with the tools you have.

Some of the talking points Hannah–Beth and I go over in this episode include:

  • How Hannah helped create the California Fair Pay Act for equal pay for all women, how that’s personally impacted my own daughter’s career and pay, and why it’s so important to have equal pay for all women.

  • What changes for the companies that change leadership from a standard model to one focused on representation around the people in their communities.

  • Sexual assault and rape on college campuses, and how we can change the narrative through legislature and speaking up for those around us, through the example of the Yes Means Yes act and the Me Too movements.

  • The importance in recognizingof that we aren’t and do not need to be perfect, and how Hannah learned this from her own experiences.

It’s important to recognize the community you want to have and live in, and go create it and support it. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
