Women in Government Reception
Representatives Belatti, Lowen, Fukumoto Chang, and Matsumoto at local restaurant, The Dumb Coq, for the Women in Government Foundation Networking Reception
Women in Government Foundation (WIG) is a national, non-profit, non-partisan organization that celebrates and encourages women state legislators. I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the WIG's Annual Health Care Summit in Washington D.C. last November with female legislators and policy experts from across the United States.
This past Wednesday, WIG held a Networking Reception for Hawaii legislators and staff. It was great to see so many of my colleagues and celebrate my fellow female legislators.
