The organization’s creed:
We are women and men from all walks of life who agree that leadership should reflect the gender of the population: women make up half, or more, of our population and should be included in equal numbers in boardrooms, in elected office, in academia, in the professions and in all public and private enterprises and endeavors.
To empower women as leaders and to transform the culture within which we live to one that naturally includes women on an equal basis in the selection of leaders.
50/50 Leadership’s colors of gold and purple:
The suffragists who spent 82 years fighting for our right to vote used these colors in developing their “brand” so that they could be recognized. In honor of those brave and courageous women, we duplicate those colors on our site to remind us that we can do anything we set our minds to.
On March 8th, 50/50 Leadership will hold its 7th Annual Women of the World Awards at the La Cañada Country Club. The afternoon includes a buffet, silent auction, and raffle. NBC4 Southern California reporter Kim Baldonado is the emcee and the honorees are all local activists: child advocate and African AIDS activist Tersit Asrat, author and educator Anne Windes, Afghani girls mentor Betsy Emerick, and global water ambassador Tyson Mayr.
