It is a critical time for women, both in the United States and across the world.
From the rise of the #MeToo movement to the growing swath of females running for political office, women are rallying to bring positive change to the workplace and to halls of justice and government.
And to celebrate their achievements, Cheddar is launching a full day of programming dedicated to highlighting those efforts, with 100 percent female anchors and 100 percent female guests.
We want to know these women's "YES I WILL" moments -- the time in their lives they were inspired to fight for change.
“#chedHER is a day dedicated to advancing the conversation,” said Anjali Kumar, Chief People Officer and General Counsel at Cheddar. “Ultimately, we hope that using our platform for this event inspires people to see change is happening and sparks them to take actions that result in real change across all industries.”
Over the course of eight hours, Cheddar’s female anchors, Hope King, Jill Wagner, Kristen Scholer, and Alyssa Julya Smith, will be joined by women co-hosts from the worlds of business, politics, and the media. That includes JPMorgan CMO Kristin Lemkau, Hulu CFO Elaine Paul, Rep. Barbara Lee of California, and Olympic gold medalist Hope Solo.
These are women who understand how to make things happen and know what is necessary to bring change to Washington, to corporate boardrooms, to playing fields, and to movie sets.
Individually and together, they will discuss successes and challenges in their fields, where change is happening, who’s making those changes happen, and what needs to happen next.
“The best part of working at an independent news network is that we get to do things like this. We can push the envelope,” said Melissa Rosenthal, EVP at Cheddar. “We are proud to celebrate women in business across multiple industries and have the first broadcast of its kind on a post-cable news network.”
The #chedHER conversation will air live on Thursday, February 8, from 9 am to 5 pm ET. You can watch on Sling TV, Layer3 TV, Comcast X1, Twitch, Twitter, Pluto TV, Philo, TuneIn, Amazon Channels, Cheddar.com, and the Cheddar app.
