“There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to Rise.” 

 

Katy Brown photoAs we wrap up PBWC’s 33rd Annual Conference, I was vividly reminded of this quote from W.E.B Dubois.

Like many of you, I listened in awe as each of our speakers took the stage to share their personal journey to Rise. They were trailblazers and advocates for change who took the road less traveled, inspiring us all to champion our own journeys. One of the most remarkable moments during the conference was when we welcomed the first female Speaker of the House, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, to personally present PBWC’s founder, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, with the PBWC Legacy Award. This was a profound moment of recognition of the incredible legacy Congresswoman Speier has built over the years.

 

I was also deeply inspired by our 2022 PBWC Scholarship Awards recipients. Hearing firsthand from these incredible young women is a reminder of our role as leaders, mentors, and community members to enable a better future for the rising generations. We are grateful and energized by the generous donations received this week as we kickstart our 2023 Scholarship fundraising campaign. You can still donate here. Together we can truly make a difference!
