2017 Women's Symposium

The Women's Symposium of Southern California took place on March 8, 2017, which was International Women's Day.  It took place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Long Beach Marriott (4700 Airport Plaza Drive).

The symposium was completely free of charge and featured keynote speakers and breakout sessions.  Topics included tips for financial independence, improving quality of life and increasing confidence.

We chose to align our annual symposium program theme with the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) of UN Women. This is the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
•2017: WSSC Event Priority theme: Women’s economic empowerment in the changing world
•2018: WSSC Event Priority theme: Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment
•2019: WSSC Event Priority theme: Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women
