A Celebration In Person!





At our first in-person gathering in 15 months, Cathy Holt and Karmen Rubin presented information to the members and visitors in attendance about the Women's Policy Forum. Cathy saluted the current and former board members and recognized any past WPF chairs in attendance.  Karmen welcomed all new members who have joined in the last year and recognized those attending. 

In addition, Cathy talked about the work of WPF, explained the new Advocacy Committee and the work of the Foundation.  Kendal Lake updated the membership on the plans for the 2021 Emerging Issues Symposium, with a focus on women in the arts. The title is "Women in the Arts: The transformative role of art in culture and the economy."  The event is planned for Friday, November 12 with a morning session at Casa Manana and an evening reception at Amphibian Stage. 


Cathy Holt ended the program with a champagne toast for the membership and a thank you to all who have stood by the Women's Policy Forum during 2020-2021.
