Event Date:
Thursday, February 22 2018

What is the event about?

The Women's Museum of CA is hosting our 2nd Annual Women in Leadership Awards event supporting the museum. We'll be honoring the brave women behind the #MeToo and #WeSaidEnough movements and will have lots of regional elected and community leaders attending.

Senate President Pro Tem-designee Toni Atkins will be presenting the award to Adama Iwu, one of the 2017 TIME Magazine Silence Breakers. She was one of the 140 women who signed the #WeSaidEnough letter calling for a change in culture here in California politics.

United States Representatives Susan Davis and Scott Peters are chairing the honorary committee comprised of prominent elected officials from across the state of California. 



Why do we have the event?


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
