Governor Corbett Proclaims March As Women's History Month In Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett proclaimed March as Women's History Month in Pennsylvania to celebrate the many contributions of women in the commonwealth and to promote continued gains in women's leadership.

"Advocating and supporting women's leadership is an important goal for the Pennsylvania Commission for Women," Maria Montero, executive director of the commission, said. "The mentors of today help form the leaders of tomorrow."

During March, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women (PCW) will announce a state-wide leadership award initiative that identifies a rising star and highlights women in business and women engaged in their communities.

Pam Varkony, a PCW commissioner and founder of Spectrum Global Training and the Power of Women Networking Initiative, has seen the importance of mentoring throughout her career.

"It's about more than being a role model, it's about sharing your experiences and lessons learned while nurturing another woman's unique talents. Mentoring is one of the most important contributions women can make to each other," Varkony said.

PCW, along with several other state agencies, will host an event in the Capitol to honor the official theme for Women's History Month, "Women Inspiring Innovation through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)." The event will focus on mentoring young women in STEM fields, and speakers will include women in leadership roles in these fields.
