CARSON — Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson and Mrs. LeCresha Gipson will welcome hundreds of guests on Saturday, May 19, 2018, for the 7th annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast at the Juanita Millender McDonald Community Center in Carson where local women will be honored for their commitment to improving the lives of others.
“We honor talented and humble women who quietly achieve great things in the service of their communities,” said Gipson. “They have exhibited resiliency and a spirit of generosity that undoubtedly comes from hard work and faith.”
Twenty-eighteen “is referred to as the ‘Year of the Woman,’” LeCresha Gipson said. “This is not a new term, but it does speak to a re-energized push for equity and more representation. It’s an emboldened voice against sexual harassment and other injustices. Women are seeking political office more than ever and school-aged girls are introduced to STEM careers. We are celebrating empowerment.”
The Leadership Breakfast will begin with 8 a.m. registration; the breakfast begins at 9 a.m. Tickets are $15 with proceeds earmarked for the nonprofit Challenging Minds organization. For more information and tickets, visit ChallengingMinds.org or call (310) 324-6408.
