As Iowa’s foundation dedicated to helping women overcome barriers to success, we are excited to announce the keynote speaker for our Annual Awards Luncheon: Danielle Kurtzleben.

Ms. Kurtzleben is a political reporter for National Public Radio and a regular on the NPR Politics podcast, which she also hosts on occasion. She specializes in economics and politics, particularly as they relate to gender. Both at NPR and in her former roles at Vox  & U.S. News & World Report, Danielle’s work makes sense of policy and data to help listeners more easily understand their place in American politics.

A native of Titonka, Iowa, Danielle has a wide perspective of the world between rural America and the Beltway. Blending insight, trends and humor, her address will highlight how gender issues are rapidly changing and how it may impact the future of politics, policy and beyond.
