National Women of Color Day Awards Luncheon: March 7

The National Institute for Women of Color (NIWC) has designated the first day of Women's History Month as National Women of Color Day. For the tenth consecutive year, Penn, HUP and now Presbyterian seek to increase our awareness of the talents and achievements of women of color. We hope you will join us for this uplifting and inspirational celebration.

The Luncheon Planning Committee is finalizing plans for the Tenth Annual Awards Luncheon which will be held at the Penn Tower Hotel, Friday, March 7, from noon until 2 p.m.

As in past years, we will recognize women in our community whose special commitment, and dedicated service to Penn, HUP, Presbyterian or Delaware Valley have made a difference in the lives of women of color.
