In the Company of Women 2017

In the Company of Women 2017

Celebrate the strength, courage, and spirit of women and their extraordinary achievements

The 19th annual In the Company of Women benefit luncheon was held on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Hundreds of guests celebrated the strength, courage, and spirit of women and their extraordinary achievements. In addition to a dynamic keynote, the signature event included the Tribute to Women & Industry Awards (TWIN), recognizing outstanding professional women in San Diego. Proceeds benefited our transformational domestic violence and homelessness programs.

Three-time Grammy-winning singer and humanitarian Angélique Kidjo electrifies audiences around the world with the strength of her voice and fervent commitment to empowering women. Inspired by her valiant triumphs and recent memoir, Spirit Rising, Angélique motivated us to live our dreams through a powerful keynote address and invigorating musical performance.
