About this Event

UPDATE: March 5, 2020 // EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The County of Santa Clara’s Public Health Department has recommended that large gatherings be postponed or cancelled given the status of the COVID-19 virus.

Therefore, for public health and safety, the Women’s Leadership Policy Summit on Saturday March 14, 2020 will be postponed until a future date. My office will be in touch once a new date has been confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding. Please stay up to date with the latest news about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) by visiting our County’s Public Health Department website: https://www.sccgov.org/sites/phd/DiseaseInformation/novel-coronavirus/Pages/home.aspx .
