CWPP Luncheon celebrates a century of women's suffrage
As part of celebrating a century of Oregon women's suffrage, this fall the Center for Women, Politics & Policy will be hosting its Sixth Annual Women's Leadership Luncheon. The event brings together community leaders to help support and recognize local women leaders and inspire the next generation. The proceeds of the event help fund two of the Center's development programs: NEW LeadershipTM Oregon and Teens Lead. Together, these programs have trained nearly 300 women who have won community awards, run for office, and served in leadership positions throughout the state and nation.
