GUESTS:
Irin Carmon, National Reporter, MSNBC; Co-Author, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Baber Ginsburg

Gillian Thomas, Senior Staff Attorney, The American Civil Liberties Union's (ACLU) Women's Rights Project; Author, Because of Sex: One Law, Ten Cases, and Fifty Years That Changed American Women's Lives at Work

PROGRAM TITLE: Women, Work & the Supreme Court. Women comprise nearly half the U.S. workforce and increasingly occupy the top echelons of every field. But it wasn't so long ago that they were segregated into a few, low-paying jobs. Through the tireless work of visionary attorneys and brave women who stepped forward to challenge the status quo, we got from there to here. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the preeminent feminist pioneers, first as a litigator, and then as the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court. Nearly a half-century into her career, this octogenarian won the internet as "Notorious RBG". Across America, people who weren't even born when Justice Ginsburg first made her name, are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute. Irin Carmon, award-winning MSNBC reporter and co-author of The New York Times best-seller Notorious RBG, will illuminate this remarkable and transformative woman whose appeal transcends generational divides. She'll be joined by Gillian Thomas, a lawyer with the ACLU Women's Rights Project whose book, Because of Sex (described by The New York Times as "meticulously researched and rewarding to read"), recounts the landmark Supreme Court decisions that created the legal standards governing sex discrimination at work, and vividly tells the stories of the ordinary women behind the cases. With questions posed by author, workplace and women's issues expert Deborah Epstein Henry, Irin and Gillian will discuss how our country still struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality despite the vast changes Justice Ginsburg and other feminist heroines, both famous and unsung, have effectuated for working women. They will also explore how these historic victories and other efforts can continue to revolutionize the lives of America's working women tomorrow.

DATE: Monday, July 18, 2016, 12 - 2:00 p.m.

TOPIC: 10% Happier.

LOCATION & LUNCH: Sidley Austin LLP, 787 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY. Sidley has graciously offered to provide lunch and copies of 10% Happier to all in-person attendees. This event will also be simultaneously webcasted.

GUEST: Dan Harris, New York Times best-selling author of 10% Happier, correspondent for ABC News, anchor for Nightline and co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America.

DESCRIPTION: 10% Happier. Have you ever struggled with that voice in your head? You know - the one that has you losing control of your emotions unnecessarily, checking your e-mail compulsively, eating when you're not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present? Have you also assumed that you're stuck with that voice and there's nothing you can do to rein it in? Perhaps you're wrong. At this event, we are honored to host ABC News anchor and New York Times best-selling author, Dan Harris, who has found a way to tame the voice in his head and become 10% Happier. With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert Deborah Epstein Henry, Dan will share how, as a lifelong nonbeliever, he embarked on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, to discover a way to get happier through meditation that is truly achievable. He will recount how what prompted his self-examination was an on-air panic attack on Good Morning America. Eventually, Dan realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had both propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to use drugs and make other profoundly damaging decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out. He will reveal the deep dive he took into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using meditation for increased calm, focus, and happiness and how you can do so too. Dan will take you on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America's spiritual scene, and leave you with a takeaway that could actually change your life.
