TEMPLETON – On Tuesday, May 9, from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the Templeton Women in Business professional group, who as of 2017 has been serving the community of Templeton for eight years, will gather for its annual Legislative Luncheon.
As a group of women who are apart of the Templeton Chamber of Commerce, the group ultimately aims to promote and support women in business — both experienced and inexperienced.
Despite the hardships that many women still endure daily, even here on the Central Coast, women of the twentieth century have seen a tremendous gain in three major areas, including education, rights and leadership, and this alone has driven change in regards to accelerating gender equality.
This is important because the voice of women, in many industries including business — a predominantly male dominated world both globally and locally — is often constrained. Therefore, the more women that hold positions of power within local Templeton community organizations, the more role models young girls here will have. When girls see women from their own communities in leadership positions, the possibilities for their own accomplishments can also often seem more real and possible.
The legislative luncheon, which will be hosted at McPhee’s Grill located at 416 South Main St., will feature presentations by county supervisors Debbie Arnold and John Preschong, who both represent and have in mind the best interests of north county.
The two members will discuss the state of Templeton’s economy, as well as local government processes and measures being taken to address current pressing issues being faced.
Although non-members and men are invited as well as encouraged to attend, the Templeton Women in Business group hopes to - through educational events, information exchanges, partnerships and networking opportunities — positively influence the particular dynamics of today’s business environment.
Admission for the luncheon costs $30 for members and $35 for non-members and reservations for the event can be made by contacting 805-434-1789.
