It’s officially March, the month we release our annual Women in Leadership issue, which showcases some of the exceptional women making an impact in the Capital Region. It’s also Women’s History Month, an annual celebration that began in the 1970s when outrage over women’s exclusion from America’s narrative came to a fever pitch.
In this issue — and all month long on the web — we’ll feature leaders representing a range of industries, including manufacturing, education, law, housing, banking and more. We’ve called this issue “Rising to the Top.” The title’s significance will become clear once we release the photos from this special shoot!
Here’s the latest:
A new state law mandates all Californians and businesses recover edible food and recycle food waste to reduce greenhouse gases; nominations for our Young Professionals issue open up; our president and publisher kicks off the Women in Leadership issue by reflecting on women’s roles in society and business; Afghan refugees adjust to life in the Capital Region with support from nonprofits and community organizations; a Sacramento-based ceramicist examines the volatile nature of her medium; a Suisun City grocer and kitchen offers Jamaican cuisine and products to patrons nostalgic for Caribbean flavors; and CalMatters reports on the pandemic’s effect on income inequality.
Do you know an inspirational young leader age 40 or under making a difference in the Capital Region? Nominate them for our upcoming Young Professionals issue! It takes just a few minutes to fill out the form and submit your pick. Deadline for submissions is April 1.
Don’t forget to subscribe to the magazine to stay up to date on the region’s business trends, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for daily stories and extras.
