On March 16th, Prince George’s County will hold its 32nd Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon to celebrate the dynamic accomplishments of women who serve in and partner with government and their impact on people and communities. The national theme, “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business” celebrates an important segment of women’s contributions to the workforce.
The Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon draws nearly 1,000 women—not only from government, but also from the arts, business, education, religion, nonprofits, and other disciplines—who are doing great work. It is the County’s premiere networking event for those who want to connect to the women of the Washington metropolitan area.
The highlight of the event are the awards presentations: the naming of the highly coveted and prestigious Gladys Noon Spellman Public Service Award, which is named in honor of the late Congresswoman who climbed the ranks of service from the County classroom to Capitol Hill, the Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarship Award, which recognizes a graduating senior with both academic and civic excellence, and the Women in Government “WING” Award that recognizes accomplishments that are inspirational, innovative, informative, and/or influential to the work of government.
