Although I am not a woman, I thought it would be a good idea to blog about Woman's History Month in West Hollywood since it's a great event going on in the community I serve with complete dedication.
West Hollywood is continuing to honor the many great achievements of women of the past and from the present all during the month of March. The month-long honor is called "Living the Legacy," which is a tribute to women with a display of biographies, posters and photographs of contemporary and historical women that will be exhibited at the West Hollywood City Hall at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard until April 3, 2009.
There will be many exciting events during the month of March in West Hollywood in celebration of Women's History Month. On March 18th at 6 pm, the 14th Annual Women in Leadership Awards and Reception will take place at 8801 West Sunset Boulevard. This is a recognition ceremony that acknowledges all the achievements and contributions of many local women. Honorees this year will include Anna Palkow, Claudia Endler, Sheila Kuehl, Lorri Jean and Janet Chapman. This year's event is $15 per person, which will benefit the West Hollywood Youth Scholarship Program.
On Friday, March 20th at 8 am, join the Third Annual West Hollywood Women's Leadership Conference: Phenomenal Women, Creating a New Today at 8430 Sunset Boulevard. There will be special guest speakers touching on the topics of "Leading with Confidence in Uncertain Times". Price is $15 per person. Seating is limited, so please register in advance.
Also, on Friday, March 20th at 7 pm, come for an exclusive screening of the Oscar-nominated feature film "Frozen River" at the Pacific Design Center in the Silver Screen Theater. The film takes place just days before Christmas near a border crossing on the Mohawk reservation between New York State and Quebec. Two single mothers; one Mohawk, one white, are faced with desperate circumstances. A panel discussion and dessert will follow. This is a free event.
On March 21st at 8 am, come out for the second day of the two-day West Hollywood Women's Leadership Conference. Saturday's event will focus on leadership opportunities for women, personal development and leadership skills development. This event will be held at 8687 Melrose Avenue.
