Vision 2020’s Spring Breakthru Conference Postponed
Vision 2020’s Women 100 has announced the postponement of its Spring Breakthru Conference until Spring 2021.
The event is designed to bring college students from across the country to Philadelphia for a weekend focused on equipping them with the training, tools and resources to advocate for positive social change.
Lynn H. Yeakel, founder and president of Vision 2020, said registration for Spring Breakthru was below expected levels because colleges are currently reluctant to promote unnecessary travel by their students.
“We completely understand that student safety is their top priority,” Yeakel said. “We will be working with the incredible speakers and panelists to reschedule as many as possible for next year.”
All students who registered will be guaranteed spots in Spring Breakthru 2021.
Spring Breakthru, originally scheduled March 20-22, 2020, is one of the many programs and events in the series Women 100: A Celebration of American Women. The series has been organized by Vision 2020, a national women’s equality coalition headquartered at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
