About The Event
The City of Bloomington Commission on the Status of Women announces the 2023 Women’s History Month Luncheon. The theme of this year’s event is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” which encourages the recognition of women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling. This timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art and news, pursuing truth and reflecting society decade after decade.
This year’s keynote presenter is Indianapolis native Manón Voice, who has become a trusted voice in the the arts and activism community. Manón expresses her passions through her work as a Poet, Hip-Hop Emcee, Speaker, Educator, and advocate for Social Justice. Manón Voice strives to amplify the richness of the human narrative through workshops, public speaking, performance, poetry commissions, collaborations, and more.
The luncheon will also recognize the 2023 Women’s Achievement Award winners, which include the following award categories: 2023 Woman of the Year, the Toby Strout Lifetime Contribution Award, and the Emerging Leader Award. The winners for each of these categories will be announced soon!
