Latest news from the WGC.


As we wrap-up a busy month celebrating Women's History Month, International Women's Day, Equal Pay Dayand WGC's 20th Anniversary Year, we thank all WGC members who joined us on March 8 at our Virtual Annual Celebration with Keynote Speaker Jeannie Infante Sager, Director of the Women's Philanthropy Institute, who discussed "Gaps and Growth in Philanthropic Support for Women and Girls". At this event we also announced our new State of Women and Girls in Howard County - take a look at our full event follow-up! 

If you were unable to join us, you can view our 20th Anniversary Tribute video here, view remarks from County Executive Calvin Ball here, and for fun, watch the video we made on our 10th Anniversary here to learn a bit more about how we started.

And, we were honored to co-sponsor "​Reading Human Rights​"​ with the Howard County Office of Human Rights and Equity and the Howard County Library System, in honor of Women's History Month. Learn more here.

If you are as inspired as we are to continue making a difference collectively, we hope you will get involved with all we have going on the next several months as part of our 20th Anniversary year, including:
