In collaboration with the City of West Hollywood’s Women’s Advisory Board, the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will present the Phillis Morris Award to Anna Paola Snaidero of Snaidero USA, for excellence in the design industry. The City of West Hollywood, the City’s Women’s Advisory Board and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will host its 22nd annual Women in Leadership Awards with a ceremony and reception.
The event will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at woven in West Hollywood.
The Women in Leadership Awards is a recognition ceremony acknowledging the achievements of local women in the professional and commercial/industrial business community. Co-sponsored by the West Hollywood Women’s Advisory Board and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Women in Leadership Awards Reception originally began as a business mixer in 1991. Held during Women’s History Month, the business mixer offered women the opportunity to network with each other and meet women leaders from various fields.
The Selection Committee includes members of the Women’s Advisory Board, WeHo Chamber of Commerce representative and West Hollywood City Staff. Candidates must work for an organization or entity in the City of West Hollywood or work for an organization whose efforts greatly affect the community. They must have demonstrated record of great achievement and/or civil involvement in the West Hollywood community.
The Women in Leadership Award itself is a unique design created by artist Carol Celluci. In 1999, one of the awards was named in memory of design pioneer Phyllis Morris. The West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has the distinct honor of bestowing this award to an individual for excellence either in the design industry or leading entrepreneurship.
In addition to Mrs. Snaidero, this year’s Women in Leadership Awards are presented to the following four other extraordinary honorees:
JD Disalvatore, Activist and Filmmaker
Patti Giggans, Executive Director of Peace Over Violence
Pamela Magette, Executive Director of PAWS/LA
Maria Shtabskaya, Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley & Community Leader
