Nashville, Tenn.—The Women’s Economic Council Foundation (WECF) recently announced the program for the 2011 Economic Summit for Women, which features Linda Garceau, Centerstone Foundation CEO and Deborah Taylor Tate, Centerstone of Tennessee Board Member and former Federal Communications Commissioner (FCC).

The summit will take place on October 24 at the Nashville Airport Marriott. The overarching theme for this year’s event is a “Road Map to Financial Equity,” with the agenda highlighting gender discrimination in Tennessee and paths to effect change through private and public sector channels.

Garceau and Tate will participate in a panel discussion during a session titled “Miss Representation,” which will focus on the media’s influence on women and girls. Titled after a documentary film, the session will feature discussion about misrepresentation of women in the media and what can be done to change it. Garceau and Tate will serve as expert voices on the topic and participate in audience Q&A during the October 24 session.
