We have always had to be resilient in the face of fear, prejudice and ignorance
Women who change the world are everywhere. In politics. In art. In education. Olivia has been proud to facilitate change for over 45 years, first as a women’s music record label and now as the world’s premier travel company for LGBTQ+ women. It’s one of the reasons that Olivia has teamed up with Lez Talk Dallas and is a proud sponsor of the event. This year’s theme of “Resilience” strikes a particularly poignant chord, because as LGBTQ+ women we have always had to be resilient in the face of fear, prejudice and ignorance. Resilience is even more important as we head into a very vital election year. Olivia prides itself on working with people like those involved in Lez Talk Dallas, where real change and fresh ideas are created. Having the opportunity to connect with and work side by side with people in our community as well as our supportive allies, is one we can all benefit from.
It’s also why Olivia will be hosting thought leaders, artists and innovators like writer, political activist, and feminist organizer Gloria Steinem, Suze Orman, singer/songwriters Judy Collins and Cris Williamson, personal finance expert Suze Orman, and former Houston mayor Annise Parker at the Women Who Change the World Summit, which takes place on the Olivia Pacific Coastal Cruise, April 23-29, 2020. While cruising along stunning posts like San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver, these incredible women will share their ideas and stories, whether in speech or in song, with 1400 women of Olivia. Or celebrate 30 years of women in travel with The Indigo Girls, comedian and emcee Karen Williams, Latin-music group CocoMama, and singer extraordinaire Marcelle Davies-Lashley, on Olivia’s 30th Anniversary Caribbean Cruise, January 22-29, 2020.
Empowering women is still important, especially while the Equality Act still lingers in the Senate and where it is still legal to fire someone for being LGBTQ in many states. Come to Lez Talk Dallas and empower yourself and your community, then join Olivia’s Women Who Change the World Summit or Anniversary Cruise and get re-energized and ready to change the world yourself.
