Watch as Women of the World’s Founder, Samira Harnish, discusses this event with Mary Dickson on KUED’s Contact that highlights non-profits across the state of Utah. The show airs on 19 November but you can watch it on Contact’s website at the link below.
As Samira mentioned in the interview, we are excited to have Salt Lake County’s First Lady, Julie McAdams, present the awards to the women thriving in our community.
Each year Women of the World celebrates the holiday season with a celebration of our ladies’ successes throughout the year. We know that the stories and the certificates encourage the entire community to move forward, to see themselves in the successes of the women accepting certificates, and to strive to do more than survive in their resettlement community, but to thrive. This is the first year that a woman representing the entire community will present the certificates. Salt Lake County’s First Lady Julie McAdams is a fierce advocate for progressive policies and for those living in Utah. We are excited to have a successful woman in the prime of her career giving the certificates of appreciation to those in the beginning of their successful ventures.
