Women’s History Month
2019 Women’s History Month Luncheon
“Visionary Women in Prince George’s County”
On March 21st, Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks will host the 34th Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon to celebrate the dynamic accomplishments of visionary women who serve in and partner with government to influence and impact our communities. The event will begin at 11:30 A.M., at Martin’s Crosswinds, Hanover Parkway in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The County’s theme, “Visionary Women” highlights individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate dedication, commitment and pride in Prince George’s County. The national theme, Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence, honors women who have pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society.
The Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon attracts women and men—from government, the arts, business, education, religion, nonprofits and other disciplines—who are doing great work in our County and region. 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 is the awards presentation. This year, awards will be presented to the recipient of the 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, in addition to recognition of several visionary and accomplished women in our community. For the first time, "The Prince George's Pride Award" will be presented by County Executive Alsobrooks to outstanding women in Prince George's County representing business, education and nonprofits who have demonstrated civic pride in their work and in the community. The Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarship Award will recognize a graduating senior with both academic and civic excellence.
