I had the honor and privilege of moderating my first panel and it happened to be at the first conference I attended after moving to Los Angeles and it also happened to be on a topic I am extremely passionate about (Men + Feminism). Needless to say, it was a pretty epic moment that couldn't even be ruined by the fact that my period came blasting through my light pink pants 10 minutes before the panel started. (Not kidding.)
Talk about bridging experiences between men and women, I was standing there living it on stage in front of the entire crowd! But besides that, It was a truly incredible time to share the stage with 5 powerful and compassionate leaders in social justice and to receive feedback that the conversation was potent and useful and inspiring even to folks who couldn't understand why there would need to be a panel on men and feminism at a Women's Leadership Conference. More on that soon!
