2020 has been a year like no other. For IWF NorCal members, it's been a time to be grateful, resilient and adaptable. It's also been a time to reflect on the inequities in Northern California and how we each can act and drive change.
In 2020, we also celebrate 25 years of the IWF Northern California Legacy Foundation. Legacy leverages the best of IWF NorCal, our means of paying it forward to improve the status of women and foster the development of future women leaders in our community.
Once a year, we gather to celebrate Legacy and the important work our members and partners do on behalf of women and girls.
We invite you to join us on Thursday, October 1, 2020 for our fourth annual Legacy Celebration.
While this year's event will be virtual, it will bring the fun and intimacy of our in-person celebrations. We will reconnect as women leaders, celebrate Legacy’s 25-year history and founding members, and learn from an amazing local leader, April Grayson. Journalist and IWF NorCal's own Jan Yanehiro will help weave together the evening.
- Attendee Connection – What does Legacy mean for you? Our event starts with an opportunity to check in with friends and new faces in small groups.
- Celebrating 25 Years of Legacy – We'll look back on Legacy’s history and impact, recognizing the efforts of Legacy's founders and the myriad of ways Legacy has encouraged IWF NorCal members to foster the leadership of women and girls.
- Legacy Auction – Your last chance to bid on several one-of-a-kind items curated for IWF NorCal members. View the auction catalog and visit our auction website!
- Inspirational Leadership – April Grayson, a leader supported by Legacy Partner, Rise Up, will be our keynote speaker. April is the Campaign Surrogate for Represent Justice and Statewide Coordinator for the Young Women’s Freedom Center. She raises awareness of the mass incarceration of juveniles as well as women locked up in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Knowing first-hand the terrors of incarceration, she has dedicated her life to giving women behind bars a voice.
The Celebration kicks off Legacy’s 2020 fall fundraising campaign. We will close the event asking for your support.
This is a complimentary Legacy community event. Feel free to invite guests and/or prospective IWF NorCal members.
