at a Special Inaugural Awards Luncheon and Program

We will be honoring all the 2018 Honorees. The Honorees who will be in attendance include Susan Burton, Roma Guy, Saru Jayaraman, Pat Maginnis, Arlene Mayerson, and Angelica Salas

The 2018 Theme for National Women’s History Month is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”  Throughout this year, we honor fifteen outstanding women for their unrelenting and inspirational persistence, and for understanding that, by fighting all forms of discrimination against women and girls, they have shaped America’s history and our future.  These 2018 Honorees refused to be silenced.  Their lives demonstrate the power of voice, of taking action, and of believing that meaningful and lasting change is possible in our democratic society.
