WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH EVENT & TRAILBLAZER AWARDS
March 1, 2021 at 4:00 pm, Virtual
 

March is Women’s History Month. This event is the largest community-wide event celebrating the extraordinary contributions made by women and girls to our quality of life in Tallahassee/Leon County. Understanding the history of women’s accomplishments gives us the opportunity to thank these women and others as well as educate and inspire.

During the event three awards will be given to women who have blazed a local trail – The Trailblazer Award, the Unsung Shero Award and the Girls Can Do Anything Award.

In its 13th year of being presented by Oasis, this year the event will be held virtually.

This Year's Honorees

Oasis is a place where women and girls are valued, supported, and celebrated. We see barriers to women’s well-being and we work to diminish them. 

  • Our individual counseling, specializing in women’s issues, offers mental health support on a sliding fee scale.
  • Girls Can Do Anything! summer camp engages girls in big visions of who they are and want to be while meeting women doing awesome things throughout the community. Discounts are available for families in need.
  • We take our girls empowerment programming out into the community, where girls are, providing small-group support in the K-12 setting. 
  • Our single moms’ support group meets once a week in 8-week cohorts. There is a small fee to establish commitment. Dinner and childcare are included for the 90-minute sessions.
  • We award women’s local contributions, honoring Trailblazers annually and telling these important stories in elementary schools.
  • Barriers to women’s equity, safety, health, agency, and economic mobility, are also resolved by representation. So we train women to run for office through a nonpartisan, issue-neutral curriculum and event series called Women Can Run.

“I saw my daughter become a strong, confident young woman. Keep up the good work!”
