In honor of Women’s History Month, Navy Region Hawaii and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) will host events to celebrate this month’s theme, “Working to form a more perfect union: Honoring women in public service and government.”

Celebrated each year in March, the JBPHH diversity committee will kick off the event with a special meal at two locations, the Silver Dolphin Bistro and Hale Aina dining facility at JBPHH on March 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Both meals will also include mashed potatoes, buttered carrots, salad bar, fresh fruit, assorted desserts and beverages.

In addition, a cultural awareness observance will also take place at the Hickam Theater on March 31 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to recognize the accomplishments of women throughout history. The event will feature booth exhibits, opening remarks, a senior leadership panel, lunch, seminar and a stress relief yoga session.
