National Women of Color Day: Awards Luncheon March 5

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 twelfth consecutive year, Penn, UPHS, Presbyterian and now Pennsylvania Hospital 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 Planning Committee is finalizing plans for the 1999 Awards Luncheon which will be held at the Penn Tower Hotel, Friday, March 5, from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m.

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