We are excited to announce our keynote speaker for the October 5 gala! Tracey Panek is Historian and Director of Archives for Levi Strauss & Co. and is also the company’s media  spokesperson, representing Levi’s at speaking engagements all over the world. As part of her role, Tracey manages the day-to-day workings of the archives and is an integral member of the corporate team, helping answer historical questions about the company and assisting designers, brand managers, and employees whose work requires historical materials. Next to Tracey’s desk is a vault containing the first pair of Levi’s from 1873.

She regularly hunts for unique vintage Levi’s garments and other unusual Levi’s items to add to the archives. Tracey loves Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park and has fond memories of meeting and talking with Rosie and Boilermaker Phyllis Gould about  how she wore Levi’s jeans to work at the shipyard. Tracey plans to talk about how jeans were a game changer for women during WWII and why jeans remain relevant today. 

We hope you will attend the gala — this is a talk that you won’t want to miss!
