BETH FUKUMOTO

        Beth is the founder of Solving Equal, a non-profit organization, focused on uncovering and eliminating cultural biases that limit equity for women and girls.

        Named one of Washington Post "The Fix's 40 under 40" rising political stars, Beth served as a member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from 2012-2018. She was the youngest woman in the U.S. to hold legislative leadership until she was stripped of the title following her criticism of President Trump at the Hawaii Women's March.

        Her story gained significant national attention. Beth made appearances on Chelsea, Jim Jeffries Show, and Liz Plank’s Divided States of Women, as well as being featured in publications such as Elle, Slate, Wall Street Journal and Teen Vogue. A short documentary produced by The Outline, was nominated by the American Society of Magazine Editors for an Ellie Award.

        Once as an elected official, now as a public speaker, writer and organizer, Beth is committed to helping women and minorities achieve equity, increase political influence and build a more inclusive government.
