Dear Friends,

We are excited to invite you to our Women’s Day Panel discussion, “How Women Beautify the World” taking place on March 11st at 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm in Los Altos Library, Orchard Room.

This event aims to celebrate and empower women by bringing together a diverse group of inspiring and accomplished women from various fields to share their unique perspectives and experiences on how women have been instrumental in making the world a more beautiful and compassionate place. Topics that will be discussed include women’s impact on social activism, climate change, gender gap in education, and the lives of orphans through volunteering, connection and caring. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where attendees can interact with the panelists and ask questions.

We believe this event will provide a valuable opportunity for women to learn from each other, share ideas, and network with like-minded individuals. It is a chance to celebrate the achievements of women, and to inspire each other to strive for even greater success. We also hope to inspire attendees to continue making a positive impact in their own communities.
