Women of Color Empowered

WoCE is a luncheon organized by the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation that is held three times a year. It celebrates the wonderful accomplishments of women who have worked hard to break through the glass ceiling. Each luncheon has a theme, such as women in law, women in corporations, women in the media — you name it!  If women of color have blazed new trails, they deserve to be honored.
