The Broward County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) will celebrate National Women’s History Month March 1 – 31, by honoring 25 women leaders from across the County who exemplify the theme of this year’s national observance: “Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment.”
The honorees will be featured in an exhibit in the lobby of the Governmental Center, 115 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, in March. They represent a wide array of diverse women throughout the County and from many fields of work, including education, health, business, government, community service, environment and social services.
“Our goal is to spotlight these advocates who work tirelessly for the betterment of women and girls in Broward County,” said Andrea JohnBaptiste, chair of the CSW and president and CEO of Axum Management Capabilities, Inc., Sunrise.
These women will also be honored at the March 27 County Commission Board meeting, when the Board presents a proclamation recognizing National Women’s History Month and the women achievers in our community.
The CSW serves in an advisory capacity to the Broward County Commission and the community in matters pertaining to the status of women. It identifies and helps resolve economic health, social and other issues through education and advocacy. For more information, visit broward.org/statuswomen.
