March is Women’s History Month. A project of the Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, it’s designed to “pay tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society.”
We created GirlsOnTheGrid.com in 2009 to celebrate Sacramento and provide a creative outlet for professional women to share advice and experiences. To that end, we’re honoring nineteen women kicking ass in their careers and working tirelessly to support their communities.
Some names are instantly recognizable – others are unsung (she)ros. Some are policy advocates and small business owners – others are creating iconic art and brands that showcase Sacramento’s strengths and culture. But they all share a commitment to supporting other women and giving back their time and talents to our beloved City of Trees.
They’re making history right now – and we’re thrilled they choose to call Sacramento home. Congrats to all the 2017 honorees – be sure to click on the picture to learn more – and we’ll promote a new woman each weekday on GOTG’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
