I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

This recognition program is part of East Los Angeles-Montebello BPW’s celebration of National Business Women’s Week® (NWBW). National Business Women’s Week® lets communities, companies and organizations celebrate the contributions of workingwomen and companies that have made strides toward improving working women’s lives in their communities. Emma Dot Partridge, Executive Secretary of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women, came up with the concept of National Business Women’s Week® with the first celebration being April 15-22, 1928. In 1938 NBWW moved to the third week of October. U.S. President Herbert Hoover was the first President to issue a letter recognizing NBWW and the contributions and achievements of working women. Every President since then has issued a proclamation recognizing NBWW.

East Los Angeles-Montebello BPW is a member of the California Federation of Business and Professional Women and also a member of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, inc. (NFBPWC) and BPW International. NFBPW is the oldest organization of its kind in the world; devoted entirely and actively to the interests and needs of all women irrespective of their occupations and of their status. Our mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information. Today, we continue the fight for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, the ratification of the CEDAW treaty and equal pay for women. Membership is open to anyone who supports this and other items on our Public Policy Statement.

The recognition dinner is open to all interested people. For more information about the dinner or about BPW contact Linda Wilson, East Los Angeles-Montebello BPW, at (626) 307-5650 or lindalwilson@juno.com.
