March is Women’s History Month
The Broward County Commission on the Status of Women will celebrate National Women’s History Month in March, by honoring seven Broward County Women business leaders who exemplify the theme of this year’s national observance, “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business.”
The Broward County honorees are featured this month in an exhibit in the lobby of the Governmental Center, 115 S. Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. The contributions and dedication of these business role models honor the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination of women who contribute to their respective Broward County communities.
The Broward County Commission on the Status of Women is an advisory board dedicated to advancing gender equality, empowering women in achieving their fullest potential, eliminating barriers to that achievement, recognizing women's accomplishments and initiating collaboration to inspire community action that positively affects women.
Through education and advocacy, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) identifies and helps resolve economic, health, social and other issues facing women in our community. The 18 member CSW Board appointed by Broward County Commissioners is dedicated to:
- Improving the status of women in Broward County
- Advocating legislative and administrative action to promote equality for women
- Creating awareness of women’s needs, contributions and potential of all women
- Seeking new expanded services for women in education, child care, employment, housing, social concerns, criminal justice, finance, marriage, families and more.
