Greenwich League of Women Voters to Host Panel: Leading with Civility and Respect, The Role of Women in Politics

Why has civility broken down in politics and what can we do about it? Do women have a unique role to play in restoring civility to our public life? 

LWV Greenwich, Connecticut Public, and the Greenwich Library invite members of the community to join for this bi-partisan panel discussion with three accomplished women leaders: Democratic Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons; Republican Leader of the Connecticut State House (2014-2020) Themis Klarides, and Dr. Carolyn Lukensmeyer who is the Executive Director Emerita of the National Institute for Civil Discourse.

The panelists will bring their unique perspectives to this timely conversation, moderated by Lucy Nalpathanchil, Connecticut Public’s VP for Community Engagement and an award-winning public radio reporter. 

This is the first large-scale community event that LWV Greenwich has hosted since 2019, and to celebrate our return to the Library and the Berkley Theater, we will be hosting a cocktail party in the Berkley lobby and (weather permitting) the Baxter Courtyard. This will give you the chance to connect with one another and meet the panelists.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization that encourages informed and active participation in government.  The League was founded in 1920 as an outgrowth of the seventy-two-year struggleto win voting rights for women.  It influences public policy through education and advocacy.  The League never supports or opposes any political party or candidate for elected office. The Greenwich chapter, founded in 1921, is the largest of the local chapters in Connecticut.
