Event Details

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the Arlington County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) will honor three women for the 2018 Arlington County Women of Vision for their commitment and leadership in the Arlington community. 

  • GOVERNMENT: Lauren Stienstra, Senior Manager for Research and Policy for the Arlington County Department of Public Safety Communications and Emergency Management, is the founder and program manager for HERricane Arlington, a summer camp and continuing education program designed to give high school-aged girls the knowledge, skills, and abilities to survive disasters and consider careers in emergency management and allied fields.

  • BUSINESS: Sushmita Mazumdar is an Arlington-based artist, writer, educator, and founder of Studio Pause, a space where everyday people are invited to make time for creativity and celebrate community. For the last 10 years, her work has encouraged children, families, and seniors to share their stories of home, heritage, and migration through the fun and exciting book arts. 

  • NONPROFIT: Adrienne Griffen, MPP, is the founder and executive director of Postpartum Support Virginia. Adrienne started PSVa to fill a gap in services: when she experienced postpartum depression and anxiety in 2002, it took almost six months to find the help she needed. Since then, she has been providing information, outreach, and support to new mothers and the healthcare providers who serve them.

The event will also feature keynote speakers Kathy Tran, member of the Virginia House of Delegates, representing District 42, elected to the chamber in 2017 and Barbara Amaya, advocate, author and survivor leader in the movement to end human trafficking and violence against women.
