At our last Women of Color Empowered luncheon, held on Jan. 28 at the New Hong Kong Restaurant, there were lots of men in attendance. Usually, there are just a handful of men. This time, there were at least 50 men out of an audience of 240 people. Congressman Jay Inslee showed up with a male aide.
Federal Judge Jim Robart was also there. It’s great when men show up to events that are catered more to women.
I would hope that women do the same, especially women of color. Women should how up at events that are predominately male. Diversity is crucial in a healthy society.
Men are always welcome at our events! You don’t need to ask first. ♦
