Celebrating Women’s History in Henrico

by Christy Nealey, Marketing and Technology Specialist, Organizational Learning and Talent Development Division, Department of Human Resources

Did you know last fiscal year Henrico County employed 1,988 women? That is just under half of our population. In honor of Women’s History Month this month, we encourage you to take a moment to admire the achievements of women in history, the County, and your life.

If you want to learn more about women in history, Henrico County Public Library employees have shared a list of women who inspire them. You can read their stories, join book discussions, or attend library events.

To learn about the women in our workforce, Public Relations and the office of Multicultural Community Engagement highlighted three female employees and their remarkable achievements. Watch their stories to learn more.

Regardless of how you decide to observe the month, we encourage you to start your own conversations and learn more.
