WomenNC ‘Local to Global’ with WBON of Cary as a Proud Supporter


 Local to Global


The WomenNC.org hosted their NC University Women Featured at the United Nations Presentation Dinner Forum on Thursday, February 16th 2012 at the NC State University Club in Raleigh, NC.  This was a highly anticipated dinner by many in our area and around 200 people attended the evening event (despite the crazy weather and heavy rain that made the arrival/check-in and parking a challenge!).  WBON of Cary (Women Business Owners Network) was a proud event sponsor and we had several ladies from our group at the event.  We were pleased to be part of such an amazing event and it is impressive to see the WomenNC.org work so hard to help take local issues to a global level.   As an event sponsor, WBON had a nice booth display in the welcome lobby and our booth was inviting with a candy buffet of assorted yummy treats.  We had the opportunity to tell everyone who stopped by about WBON and promoted our upcoming Annual Charity Fashion Show & Fundraiser (March 14th2012) as well as our scholarship program that is offering $4,400 in scholarships this year to Wake County female business owners!  It was very exciting to see the young women recipients of the of WomenNC 2012 CSW Fellow program.  

CSW Fellows Dinner

They were so proud to have their families and friends there to support them.  One dad was there all the way from Minnesota to support his lovely daughter.  Anita Sivakumar (WomenNC President) started the evening off with a warm welcome and introduced Tamara Gibbs (WTVD ABC Eyewitness News Team) as the evening emcee.  Tamara introduced each of the CSW Fellows, and they took turns presenting their topics/findings to the crowd.  The girls will be traveling to the United Nations 56th Annual “Commission on the Status of Women” in NYC where they will represent North Carolina and present their research in a panel presentation as well as take part in dozens of conference sessions.  They will also have the opportunity to interact with people from over 200+ countries and 400 NGO’s.  After their trip, they will continue to present and share their findings with universities, non-profits and public forums all across the state of North Carolina.
