Each year the Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women honors women who have made indelible impressions on the Jacksonville community through their positive efforts.
Women are selected for their contributions of lasting value to the community and are featured on the Women's History Month poster.
Honorees reflect a cross-section of ethnic-cultural groups in the Jacksonville Community. The list of past honorees reads like a Who's Who of Prominent Jacksonville Women.
This year’s theme is: HerStory Continues: She is more than you can see
Local women who have made outstanding contributions to the Jacksonville community have been selected for recognition as 2016 Women’s History Month honorees by the Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women. This year's poster was created by our very own, Commissioner Dr. Natalie Indelicato and marks the 30th anniversary.
The Commission, in partnership with the Thomas G. Carpenter Library at the University of North Florida, hosted a reception to honor their contributions to our community on March 30th 2016 at the City of Jacksonville's Downtown Main Library.
As is the commission’s tradition, each of this year’s honorees are featured on a specially designed commemorative poster, which was unveiled at the reception. This year Mayor Lenny Cirry was also included in the poster with the honorees. The poster has been placed in the UNF Thomas G. Carpenter Library where the permanent collection of commemorative posters is exhibited. The poster honorees were selected from nominations received from individuals, women’s organizations, agencies and businesses.
