Two Juneau women, Andrea Doll and Teri Tibbett, have been chosen to represent Alaska at a two-day congress of Vision 2020.
Vision 2020 is a national project focused on advancing gender equality by energizing the dialogue about women and leadership. Its first public event takes place on Oct. 21-22, 2010, when a congress of national delegates, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, will meet at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia to launch an action agenda to move America toward equality by 2020, the centennial celebration of the 19th Amendment. The name of the conference is Vision 2020: An American Conversation about Women and Leadership.
Doll has a public career that has touched several arenas. She was an educator and teacher in public schools, a business woman in real estate, an administrator in nonprofit agencies and a law maker in the Alaska State Legislature.
Tibbett is the advocacy coordinator for the Alaska Mental Health Board and Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, and works closely with the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority on issues affecting vulnerable Alaskans.
Juneau residents Marissa Paola Capito, Kathryn Jean Diebels and Bryce D. Mecum graduated from Western Washington University this quarter.
