Episode 030: When Women Vote featuring Stephanie Donner and Amber McReynolds

Dr. Sheryl's PodCouch

When Women Vote is a new book from Stephanie Donner and Amber McReynolds that highlights the challenges Americans, particularly women, face when trying to vote in the current voting system, and the amazing things that happen with reform. They make the case for further voting reform and for removing bias in the voting process by sharing stories and experiences of women voters and leaders throughout the United States, and discuss what that entails on this week's podcast. Stephanie Donner has spent her career devoted to the development of women and girls.  She currently serves as Sr. Advisor for the Equality Initiative at the National Vote at Home Institute. She served as Governor Hickenlooper's Chief Legal Counsel and then went on to be Chief Legal and People Officer for Galvanize, a technology education company with eight campuses across the United States. Stephanie founded the Galvanize Foundation, a 501(c)3) that exists to increase access to tech careers for women and people of color and was recognized as 9NEWS Leader of the Year in 2017 for those efforts.   Amber McReynolds (pictured) is one of the country’s leading experts on election administration and policy. During her career, she has proven that designing pro-voter policies, voter-centric processes, and implementing technical innovations will improve the voting experience for all voters. Amber is now the CEO for the National Vote At Home Institute and is the former Director of Elections for Denver, CO. During her time in Denver, the elections office was transformed into a national and international award-winning election office. Amber was also recognized as a 2018 Top Public Official of the Year by Governing Magazine for her transformational work to improve the voting experience.
