Description

2017 Women's Symposium

This year's Women's Symposium of Southern California (WSSC) will take place on March 8, 2017, on International Women's Day. We will start promptly at 6:00pm and end at 9:00pm.

The symposium is free of charge and will feature women leaders in our community as speakers and panelist in two breakout sessions. The breakout session topics are focused on financial independence, improving quality of life and increasing confidence.

This year we aligned our Symposium theme "Women’s Economic Empowerment" with the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) of UN Women. As their global intergovernmental work dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women inspired me to start a local symposium in our community the WSSC.

  • 2018 WSSC Theme: Challenges and Opportunities in achieving Gender Equality and the Empowerment
