Among the other high-profile women honored at the VIP soiree: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Google vice president of public policy and government relations and former Rep. Susan Molinari (R-N.Y.), White House deputy chief of staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, political strategist Susan McCue, Olympian Michelle Freeman, Federal Communications Commission member Mignon Clyburn, Voto Latino president and CEO Maria Teresa Kumar, NBC News’s Andrea Mitchell and CNN’s Jessica Yellin.
