Women’s History Month
“Serving Together • Serving All”
On March 15th, Prince George’s County will hold its 33rd 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. We have taken the national theme, Nevertheless She Persisted: Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, to acknowledge the full-service of government in the support of and defense of women.
The National Women’s Project web site explains the theme and its honorees as follows: The 2018 National Women’s History theme presents the opportunity to honor women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their tireless commitment to ending discrimination against women and girls. Through this theme we celebrate women fighting not only against sexism, but also against the many intersecting forms of discrimination faced by American women including discrimination based on race and ethnicity, class, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, and many other categories.
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.
The 2018 WHML will be held on March 15th at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, MD. For information about seating and sponsorship cost, please download the event flyer (PDF).
