In honor of the women who are driving change, blazing trails and nurturing society, the Berkeley Heights Diversity Council is excited to celebrate Women’s History Month by bringing back our inspiring “Woman of the Week (WOW)” series this March.
WOW will honor the women right here in Berkeley Heights who are impacting the world in their own way. Who inspires you? Motivates you? Leads you? Has impacted your life in a special way? The Berkeley Heights Diversity Council seeks your input as we select local phenomenal women to feature in our series in March. Please nominate one of the local women who inspires you by emailing the BHDC at firstname.lastname@example.org
Women’s History Week was established in 1980 and became Women’s History Month in 1987. In signing the declaration in 1980, President Jimmy Carter said,
“From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung, and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”
Please join the BHDC as we celebrate women in the Berkeley Heights community who are often unsung yet are inspiring, motivating and hardworking.
