The Women's Resource Center's 2009 Pillar Awards Luncheon was held last week. WRC Executive Director Sharon Caldwell-Newton (second from right) presents the award to representatives from three organizations: Jeffrey Connolly of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan; Jenny Shangraw of The Right Place Inc. and Ron Nelson of the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids. The 20th annual event saluted employers who have demonstrated their commitment to empowering women at work through best practice strategies. All proceeds from the event will benefit the comprehensive employment programs provided by WRC for disadvantaged women.
