Women's History Month Awards

PACCAL, through its founder Ms. Linda Mayo, initiated the recognition of women back in 2009 to align with the Women's History Month. This Community Empowerment Award - PACCAL's Women's History Month Awards is  given to women who demonstrate an outstanding commitment in their field of endeavor.  

It is PACCAL's goal to share the stories of these ladies who deserves to be heard, recognized, and serve as inspiration to the future women leaders. This day is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of these women for their strength, resilience, and determination that each of them bring to ensure every female is given the same opportunity as others.

The 2021 Honorees had their 2021 Awards Night via Zoom which has also broadcasted over social media. But PACCAL also wished to provide an onsite platform to recognize these women officially. With that, we invite the community, family, and friends to join us on June 12, 2022 at the Holiday Inn Hotel at 160-A Frontage Road, Newark, New Jersey.

We also encourage sponsors and donors to help support this event so we can continue the recognition of women. Proceeds will be used for PACCAL's programs and projects, one of which is providing a platform for young people to develop personal and professional skills through training and mentorship.
