On February 9, 2008, women will join to empower a collective voice of feminine leaders and their organizations.
WHAT: Amazing Woman’s Day brings together hundreds of feminine leaders in a day-long program to ignite fresh perspectives that support women in their vision of creating a better life for themselves, their communities, and the world. Interactive round-table discussions hosted by women’s empowerment experts and consultants offer uplifting and educational communication designed to expand a web of collaborative relationships while empowering and celebrating the individual greatness of every woman. Amazing Woman’s Day 2008 is sponsored in part by Journey Circle, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to cultivating the leadership of those who seek to create a better world.
Amazing Woman’s Day 2008 has partnered with CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. Last year, CARE programs improved the lives of more than 55 million people in nearly seventy countries around. Recognizing that women and girls make up 70 percent of the poorest people in the world today, CARE places special emphasis on working with women to create permanent social change. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity, and protect natural resources.

WHERE: Amazing Woman’s Day 2008 is hosted at the prestigious Skirball Cultural Center, a Los Angeles, California facility that seeks to welcome and inspire people of every ethnic and cultural identity in American life.
HISTORY: The celebration of Amazing Woman’s Day was first conceived nearly a decade ago by creative development coach and author Marsh Engle. As the activities, programs and outreach of the Amazing Woman initiative has expanded over the years, the core mission remained the same: To serve as a unifying symbol of women everywhere who wish to bring a sense of value and purpose to their life, their community, and the world. It was in March 2001, that women throughout the nation first joined to establish the Amazing Woman’s Day movement in ten cities throughout the United States.
To mark the first celebration, over 1,000 inspirational speakers, well-being experts, media personalities, and authors volunteered their time to honor women from all walks of life. In 2002, the celebration grew to fifty cities nationwide. A U.S. Congressional Proclamation establishes Amazing Woman’s Day as a nationwide initiative to celebrate the ingenuity and creativity of women everywhere. Since that time, the Amazing Woman’s Day movement has served to inspire thousands across the nation.
