National Women of Color Day Awards Luncheon: March 3

The National Institute for Women of Color (NIWC) has proclaimed March 1st National Women of Color Day. For the thirteenth consecutive year, Penn, UPHS, Presbyterian and Pennsylvania Hospital seek to increase our awareness of the talents and achievements of women of color. As in past years, we will recognize women in our community whose special commitment and dedicated service to their workplace, or the Delaware Valley have made a difference. We hope you will join us for this uplifting and inspirational celebration.
