2008 Monarch Leadership Awards Honors Five Emerging API Women Leaders
Nearly 200 friends and supporters came out to join PAAWBAC in honoring these outstanding young leaders. Forty former PAAWBAC Women Warriors and Monarch honorees served as Host Committee members. Dignitaries included Supervisor Carmen Chu, City Assessor Phil Ting, former Mayor Willie Brown, Representative Harriet Ishimoto from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and many of our San Francisco city commissioners and women department heads.
In 2006, PAAWBAC established the Monarch Awards to recognize emerging API women leaders who inspire those around them and who are making outstanding contributions at a young age. These young leaders are taking the reins and building new opportunities for themselves, for those they advocate for, and their communities.
