The Sidley Austin Palo Alto Committee on the Retention and Promotion of Women, a proud sponsor of the Silicon Valley Urban Debate League, hosted a 2-on-2 debate on February 11, 2016. Two of our strong young women debaters, Blanca and Kierra from East Palo Alto Academy, paired with Sidley Austin associates Helen Theung and Dorna Moini. The two teams presented arguments on the topic "Is feminism still necessary in the modern world?" and engaged the audience in a lively Q&A session afterwards.
We're grateful to Sidley Austin for hosting this incredible event and proud of Blanca and Kierra for the poise and quick-thinking they demonstrated. Two leaders of the next generation have taken a few more steps on their paths to success!
