The United Work­ers Party, through the party’s Women’s Arm, hosted its 3rd An­nual Women’s Awards Din­ner on Satur­day, 12th March, 2016. This ini­tia­tive was held on the heels of the re­cent cel­e­bra­tions of In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day and in mer­ri­ment of pro­lific women across the is­land. The party awarded over twenty women from the var­i­ous con­stituen­cies who have made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of their com­mu­ni­ties and the coun­try at large. The din­ner was well at­tended by more than 350 women and 200 men hail­ing from var­i­ous parts of the is­land.

Awarded were the likes of Ms Joyce Au­guste, a re­tired mu­sic in­struc­tor who has made a tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tion to folk mu­sic and school mu­sic sys­tems.

Ms Jeanille Bon­terre, the Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer at Nexus Net­works and Jour­nal­ist at One Caribbean Tele­vi­sion made a spe­cial ap­pear­ance as the guest speaker for the evening.

The Women’s Arm of the United Work­ers Party is proud to have hon­oured the women who through their in­tel­lect, pas­sions and skill give back un­wa­ver­ingly; the women who faith­fully seek out and make our com­mu­ni­ties and na­tion a bet­ter place. The United Work­ers Party says an earnest and heart­felt thank you to all the women awarded and all those who have not yet been awarded as they con­tinue to ef­fect change ev­ery day in the big­gest and small­est of means.
