WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY 2014
A CALL TO ACTION FOR BEIJING+20
On Saturday, August 23, 2014, WIN brought together intercultural, intergenerational California ‘movers and shakers’ who shared their stories and reports on the critical concerns in their regions and organizations. They came to the Bay Area from all corners of the state – Arcata north coast, San Diego, Central Valley, Napa, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Jose and from Massachusetts. WIN gave the Circle of Courage Award to Krishanti Dharmaraj, Jene McCovey and Marily Mondejar, and our Jedi Knight award to San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon. Elmy Bermjo was welcomed back to The City as Region 9 Representative from the Secretary of Labor. She Keynoted and Moderated a “Community – Corporate Conversation” that framed a collaboration of women from all sectors for a unified agenda. See attached Program for all the players and sponsors.
These conversations and reports will inform the California Women’s Agenda (CAWA) for the US Women’s Non-Governmental (NGO) Country Report in 2015. We will also receive input from the other 5 Policy Chairs and 10 California counties, and your voice counts. Please post your priorities and comments on the CAWA Survey Monkey HERE. With more highlights to come.
