Women for Progress of Mississippi, Inc. hosted their monthly Lunch & Learn for January and recognized founder Shalondria Hill and Open Invitation Stationery Boutique as the Woman-Owned Business of the Month. Recognized for her leadership, commitment and service to those she serves, the City of Jackson and State of Mississippi, Women for Progress honored her commitment to excellence and community service. We were beyond humbled and excited about this recognition!
Women for Progress is a catalyst for action and informs and educates the community on problems and issues surrounding education, legislation, poverty, crime, racism, religion, urban development, and unemployment. Officially chartered by the State of Mississippi in 1979, the ranks of Women For Progress grew rapidly, attracting a diverse group of individuals. Members, known as activists, use their time, talent, and treasure to develop the organization into one of the most prestigious groups in the state.
Held at The Manship Restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi, the theme of January's meeting was “A Pathway To Victory: Getting More Women Elected”.
